Our creative services group helps tell the university’s story through the use of effective design strategies and techniques. Our talented staff of designers and writers combines the expertise of a creative agency with an invaluable institutional knowledge gained from working daily with the entire University of Dallas community. We offer services that cover a full range of design needs (from print to digital) ensuring materials are consistent with the university’s brand and visual identity.

Determining When to Use Creative Services

Determining when to use creative services is quite easy. If you are communicating with or marketing to an audience off campus, then you to work your project through the Office of Marketing & Communications. All projects aimed at external audiences should adhere to established style guidelines. Our involvement will help maintain a consistent brand across all UD schools, colleges, departments and offices.
