The Creative Impact office produces media that furthers the mission of the university by elevating the university brand. We target a number of audiences including prospective students, families of students, alumni, and donors.
Priorities for scheduling projects will be coordinated by a VP or Dean with the VP for Creative Impact. Please consult with your department lead and review your communication calendar to include your project among priorities that will be reviewed with Creative Impact.
Every design request is unique. Please provide ample notice and content for your project request. Typically four weeks for new projects is needed—longer for mailings and campaigns.
A timeline will be developed once a design request is submitted. This estimation is based on the date of receipt of project content, not the design request date. We may not be able to accept rush requests when doing so will compromise other time-sensitive projects. Please contact the Creative Impact office at email@example.com to learn more.
The Creative Impact office can suggest a printer for your project based on the project’s specific needs (quantity, pricing, and schedule). Please provide the quantity and account number when submitting a design request. If you have a preferred vendor, please provide their contact info.
Once materials are received, please check your project immediately for printing errors. If there is a problem, we will act as your liaison with the printer. Our office keeps file samples from all completed requests. (When alternative arrangements are made for delivery, send 2 copies to the Creative Impact office.)
If your publication will be mailed, indicate the type of mailing when submitting your request. The type of mailing may affect layout and printing. All mailed projects (bulk or otherwise) must be approved by OKWU Mail Services. Ensuring compliance with postal regulations is included in the client’s proofing process. Extra postage costs may be incurred if design does not conform to postal regulations. Clients are responsible for all labeling and mailing after the publication has been delivered.
