Social media

Social and digital media can benefit your department, project or business area as well as positively contribute to the University’s wider social media footprint. From Twitter to Instagram, Facebook to Flickr, Cardiff University’s Marketing and PR department can advise you on how best to approach your social media project.

  • Social media guidelines are being prepared by the PR Team. In lieu of a final version of these guidelines, please contact Amy Stackhouse in the PR Team who can offer bespoke advice or preview versions of the guidelines.

Avatar maker

The University has adopted a scheme of branding corporate avatars (also known as profile pictures) for social media accounts that are corporate (e.g. not personal or individual). The branding constitutes placement of the small ‘C’ digital branding device at the top left of an avatar (of your choice). To make it easier to produce avatars for Twitter, Facebook and other network, the University has produced an Avatar Maker service.
