Working with Creative Services
Before you request the work you will need, please be prepared by thinking about some information we will need. It is helpful for you to provide a creative brief that lays out the scope, goals and budget of your project. For more complex projects that need multiple elements, such as photography, videography, print and/or digital pieces, we encourage you to first talk with your unit marketing and communications manager and then set up a consultation with Creative Services. We would love to work with you to help you meet your goals within your budget.
Things to think about include:
- What is the purpose of the project?
- Who is the audience? Is it internal or external?
- How will the work be used/distributed?
- Are there multiple components to the project? Graphic design, photography, print and more? In this case, we might want to meet with you to outline a larger project.
- What is the budget and budget number for this project?
- When would you like to have the project completed?
When you know what you need, use our online form to submit your request and a member of the Creative Services team will be in contact with you. Don’t know what you need? Contact Creative Services Director John Barnhart to request a consultation.
