Welcome to the Brenau University Marketing Office. We’re a group of creative professionals dedicated to reaching external audiences and recruiting students through strategic marketing, branding and advertising. Our team works collaboratively, bringing different talents to the table — graphic design, photography, videography, writing, website development and more — to meet marketing and web needs across the university. We are responsible for the launch, education, coordination and consistency of Brenau’s brand, specifically with external audiences. All of the university’s external advertising and marketing campaigns are carried out by our team.
We produce billboard designs, advertisements, flyers, feature articles, social media posts, branded materials (swag), videos and other content used for engaging potential and current students, and in turn, motivating them to continue their education at Brenau. Our team also manages and updates Brenau’s website and primary social media, and oversees social media policy.

Other services include internal promotion via stories, graphics and flyers; campus signage; copy editing/proofreading; design services; media training; and issues management and crisis communications.
