Images, film and music

Images are powerful message-bearers which can reinforce or clarify what you want to convey. Similarly, film is an effective means of communication which often says more about your organisation than printed material, for example.

Below, you will find information on the University’s Image and Media Bank, how to proceed when working with images and film, and templates and support for film production.

Images contribute to shaping how wider society perceives Lund University, and must therefore always be of high quality. Do use one of our procured photographers, but remember to check the University’s Image and Media Bank first.

Whether you engage a photographer or take the photographs yourself, the images are to be characterised by Lund University’s image style. This helps to distinguish us from other higher education institutions.

Image style

Image and Media Bank

The University’s Image and Media Bank contains several thousand images. Each image is accompanied by information on how you may use the image, who the photographer is and whether there is a consent to the image. Log in with your Lucat ID.

Tips for producing your own material

Video templates

To facilitate your work, there are prepared Photoshop templates for things like logo, name tags, film outro. The templates are available for download in the Image and Media Bank, where you can also download the University’s presentation video.


Lund University has specially composed music that can be used in all types of films produced on the University’s behalf. The University owns the rights to the music, so any copyright problems are avoided while ensuring the quality of the music used.


If you are to produce a video that includes text, remember to use, the University’s profile fonts Adobe Garamond Pro or Frutiger LT Std or the alternative fonts, Times and Arial.


If you work with animations, the university's cohesive style for illustrations, infographics and animations are available:

Accessible video

Remember that your video must comply with the "Law on accessibility to digital public service" if it is to be published online. On the Drupal web accessibility quick guide pages you can find tips on how to make your video accessible to as many people as possible, regardless of impairment for example. It is also important to create subtitles for your video.
