A collaborative approach

Through a collaborative approach, we’re able to support the OU’s forward-focused marketing teams with a range of requirements. Stratos’ strategic thinking allows our teams to apply cohesive solutions that accomplish objectives across different channels and platforms, while speaking to the right audiences.

We often host creative and strategic workshops too, where each team meets face-to-face to bound ideas around and align our thinking to create strategically positioned creative.

Predominantly working alongside the Business Development Unit Marketing Team, we also have various projects working with the Microcredentials and student-facing teams too.

Creating a clear direction

Since our relationship began, we have created brochures, reports, animations, photography, and supported events and online campaigns. The OU has been given full access to the creative/digital team to ensure swift understanding, briefing and clear direction when needed. This further supports our collaborative approach.
