Graphic Design and Publications

Our graphic designers can create illustrations and publications for your program or project. We can assist with the development of the product and/or program branding, create website banners, and assist with publication design and development. 

Using Adobe InDesign, the industry standard for desktop publishing, we can create publications ranging from fliers and brochures to newsletters, conference proceedings and books. In addition to performing the layout work on your projects, we will obtain bids for printing and binding from local or out-of-state vendors and act as liaisons with those vendors to obtain the product you need, on time and within budget. 

Contact us for assistance with photo image editing, file formatting concerns, or to obtain stock photos and other artwork for your projects. 

 

Media Production

Media production services include digital video recording, editing and final production. We use a variety of professional cameras, voice recorders and studio lights to achieve high-quality results. We support media projects through in-house development of CGI animations and acquisition of rights-managed assets, such as music or stock footage, from third-party vendors. Products range from raw video recording of lectures and/or thesis defenses, live-streaming online broadcasts, to show-length productions.
