Our award-winning team of graphic designers within Marketing & Creative Services are passionate about using their creative energies to fuel university marketing initiatives that attract attention, support your messaging goals and remain in line with university visual identity standards and guidelines.
Designing across print and digital mediums, we create marketing solutions for our partners, including print and editorial design, web and social media graphics, motion graphics and still illustrations, and merchandise design. Projects can vary from a simple trifold brochure to an integrated marketing campaign.
If you’re unsure of what design support you’ll need or how to communicate your message, our team of project managers and designers will help while keeping your budget and timeline in mind.
Once your project request is submitted, we’ll assign you a project manager (PM) who will be your point of contact.
Project Kickoff Meeting
Your PM will reach out to set up an initial meeting and discuss your needs, answer questions and gather information to get the project started.
Design & Proof Review Commences
After the PM has all relevant content necessary for the project, the designer begins working on a first proof, which is typically ready for review within 7–10 business days. Your PM will provide you with a proof so you can provide design and content revisions. The designer will make any modifications and you will have the chance to review again. Most projects require less than three rounds of proofs before approved.
The project will be considered approved once you have carefully reviewed the proof and verified that all text and graphic elements are correct. Although you are responsible for the final sign-off on your project, as a standard measure of quality control, our internal team will review your final proof before it goes to a printer or is saved into the final file format.
Needs vary greatly from project to project but your PM will make sure your project delivers to its final destination, whether it is a printed piece or a digital file.
Once the project is complete, we will bill your banner index code for any design time and print charges related to the project.
