Why a Brand?
SFU’s organizational units are diverse and distinctive, yet they are all part of an institution with shared values and a common purpose. Every time members of SFU communicate with the public, they influence our reputation and shape our brand. The tools we use to communicate—advertisements, signs, publications, videos, websites, presentations—all contribute to the character of not just the individual or organizational unit, but also the entire university. Communicating our brand unity strengthens our individual messages and SFU as a whole. SFU’s logo and coats of arms are protected by copyright and may not be used without written permission of the university.
