We’ll discuss your objectives and priorities, then recommend a marketing communications plan to increase awareness, boost enrollment or drive event attendance. Whatever your needs, our team is adept at partnering with your existing staff resources or offering more extensive communications support.

Graphic Design

Our expert team will work with you to develop eye-catching and effective print and digital tools, including advertising, posters, brochures, displays, reports, campaigns, billboards, Web design and HTML emails. We can also help with branding and graphic identity to elevate the look of all your marketing materials.

Copywriting/Editing

Advertising. Brochures. Web copy. Whatever the medium, we’ll brainstorm the tag lines, headlines and text that will grab readers’ attention and communicate your message with clarity and impact. Or we’ll work with your drafts to make them sparkle.

Don't settle for stock when our award-winning photographers can capture your project or event at a reasonable price. We offer professional headshots, environmental portraits, documentary work of students and faculty in action, and more. Request our services by filling out the Job Form (PDF) or calling 414-229-4282.
