What We Do

We provide professional expertise in the areas of graphic design, photography, video and audio, and banner design. Our goal is to support the college mission through the creation of effective marketing publications and products that reflect the College's commitment to excellence for the administration, faculty and specialists.

Our priorities include publications and products for student recruitment, development, alumni relations, Extension, Research and the college administration. In addition, staff members work with others in AgComm to create a wide variety of College promotional materials, including the The Ag Magazine.

We offer a variety of print templates to further the College's visual identity. Additional resources are available through the Marketing Resources site and include extension templates, the College identity standards (logos, stationery, etc.) and marketing tips. We assist with University/College graphic standard compliance and work with the College Marketing Committee to develop marketing tools, templates and policies.

Marketing Projects

Administration, faculty and specialists needing our marketing services can send Becky an email. Our creative services are at no cost, with additional charges for materials. Projects funded by grants need to be brought to our attention during the request of a project. Support for the Marketing Resources website and projects like the student viewbook, program marketing, digital banner design and the college logo standards and guidelines are created in this area.
