Digital Communications


Digital communications is so important these days and our team are kept very busy helping to promote new courses and projects online. That means they have a huge amount of knowledge on what works. If you want to pick their brains you can email them on marketing@napier.ac.uk.


If you have a larger project we will probably ask you to fill in our Marketing and Communications Service Request form and send it to marketing@napier.ac.uk. You may not have all the answers yet but this provides a basis for a conversation to discuss and finalise your brief. This forms helps us ensure we have all the information we need to give you what you need.


Note that because there is a high demand for our services, we are prioritising work which fits within the University's four areas of key weighted effort. If your request does not fit within one of these areas, we will discuss the project with you and make recommendations. This could include the use of external suppliers who have been procured by the department.
