Services chart

Our goal is to make the process of creating communication projects easy for you and your staff.

We do not charge for our core services, and we do not mark up the cost of our vendors.

Creative Services can help you with:

  • Hiring freelance design professionals
    We help find and hire the designers, copywriters, photographers, Web developers and other communication professionals who are appropriate for your project. We handle the paperwork and bidding associated with this process. We do our best to negotiate with vendors to get the most competitive fees for the scope of work, and we always provide a detailed proposal and estimate for approval before starting any work.

  • Conducting communication research
    Research is an integral part of the communication process, helping to define key audience perceptions, track specific goals, and measure project success. We work closely with you to identify appropriate research vehicles (such as surveys, focus groups, interviews, or audits), manage the research process and present key findings to drive your communication strategy, now and in the future.

  • Providing art direction and content strategy
    Our award-winning design team provides art direction and design consulting for print design, Web design and photography for advancement materials, branding, identity and logo development, viewbooks and brochures, direct mail, invitations, magazines, newsletters, media campaigns and more.

  • Handling project management and billing
    We provide planning, scheduling and resource allocation to accomplish your project objectives. We work collaboratively with you to define project plans and estimate project costs, ensure client requests are complete and clear, coordinate project meetings, track review phases and monitor the project budget.

    To meet this goal, we provide support to the university in the hiring of outside design and communication firms, provide project management services and handle project-related documentation, bidding and final billing transactions.
