Our Plan and Progress

The branding initiative will consist of four phases, from June 2018 to May 2019:

June – October 2018:  Consultation, Research and Discovery - COMPLETED

A series of focus groups were held during August, September and October to gain insight and perspectives from our university community about existing views of the University of Manitoba brand and their vision for how it should evolve.

Focus groups took place in Winnipeg, Brandon, Selkirk, Winkler, Toronto and Calgary.

October – December 2018:  Brand Strategy

Results from the focus groups will be refined and key themes reflecting the expression of the university’s brand will be identified.  Recommendations will be presented and further refined based on feedback. 

January 2019 – February 2019:  Creative Exploration

Creative exploration will begin based on the approved brand strategy and platform.

March – May 2019:  Execution and Launch

Introduction of the brand and a new visual identity to the university community will take place in spring 2019, along with identification of priority deliverables. Ongoing execution is expected to continue through the spring/summer.
