Digital communications


We can help you with digital comms, go to the Communications page. Your information is posted on the Students' Association FacebookTwitter and/or the fortnightly email that we send out to all GCU students. 




Remember to always have the Students' Association logo on your poster, this indicates to the 'poster-taking-down-people' that your are associated with us. 

Posterboards -  We also had a stroll through the whole uni and have written down all the posterboards we think that you can pin them on. Download posterboard mapping document.  Don't put them on posterboards that are clearly marked for courses or something else.


Poster/Flyer/ Digital Media - Design Top Tips


  • 2 second rule - you want to grab attention and get your message accross in about 2 secs.

  • Don’t forget colour! Make it bright and colourful, helps catch the eye.

  • Think about your image - one image can tell the person what you are trying to promote in one easy step.

  • Keep information to a minimum - essential info only, include a link to find out more.

  • Always have a contact, include: web address, facebook page and/or email address (use club/ society not personal).
