The integrated campaign, created by Cyclone Creative, showcases the university to school leavers and encourages them to visit on Open Day.
RMIT University is asking school leavers to see beyond and explore their future at Open Day with the launch of a new integrated campaign by Cyclone Creative.
The campaign is designed to generate awareness and drive attendance to RMIT Open Day across its four main campuses, with the aim of increasing preferences amongst prospective students.
“Being the first step towards generating marketable leads for course applications, Open Day is a highly competitive space amongst Australian universities," RMIT segment marketing manager for global marketing and student recruitment Sarah Morley says.
"We needed a campaign with high impact & cut-through, that strengthens RMIT’s position as a leader in learning & innovation, via a confident, youthful and energetic creative execution”.
Featuring four RMIT campus locations - City, Brunswick, Bundoora and Point Cook Flight Training – the campaign invites prospective students to experience life on campus, explore facilities and classrooms, talk one-on-one with academics and students, discover study options, student clubs, study trips and more.
The creative platform profiles existing RMIT students from different course areas, portrayed in larger than life moments of discovery.
It aims to capture the feeling of empowerment as a school leaver as they lift the lid on the next phase of life.
“We wanted to play with scale to bring across the idea of surreal wonder and exploration," Cyclone creative director Leslie Preyer says.
"The aspirational nature of this campaign evokes a feeling of total independence whereby you – as a school leaver - can now look further than just the school classroom - to see beyond your immediate horizon and explore a much bigger future with RMIT."
The campaign will run until the end of August and includes an integrated media strategy spanning digital, outdoor, radio and a social channels.
