rCITI has undergone a brand refresh in collaboration with UNSW branding and a designer. A new logo has been developed to reflect rCITI’s progress and evolution as well as symbolise the connectedness into the future. In addition, material such as PPP and letter head have been developed. The logo and branding encapsulate well rCITI’s young history in conjunction with our collective aspirations for the future. UNSW released new branding guidelines for PPP, brochures etc. at the completion of the brand refresh and the centre is working with UNSW branding to identify if any new material may need to be revised. The new logo is shown to the right.
