The Public Relations, Marketing, and Creative Services’ (PR & Marketing) creative team provides design, writing, editing, and strategic counsel to tell the NSU brand story across all communications channels. The creative team uses communication tools such as photography, illustration, animation, video, design, visuals, and text to produce compelling projects and campaigns that drive the university’s mission forward.
The creative team is responsible for the intake and assignment of all campus client project requests (other than Ariba orders). If your project involves anything beyond putting an accepted NSU logo on a promotional item, it will require creative direction and approval by the creative team.
Some of the projects handled by the creative team include:
To order standardized print materials—NSU business cards, letterhead and envelopes—please use the Ariba catalog (available through SharkLink). You can also contact Printing and Publications for any questions regarding these items or related needs.
At this time, NSU does not offer in-house video production capabilities for promotional videos. Neither PR, Marketing, and Creative Services nor Printing and Publications have videographers, photographers or editors on staff. Such video projects require out-of-pocket funding from the originating unit and require a partnership with an authorized video/production partner freelancer or agency. PR/Marketing can help you assess your video projects and guide you in this process, but we do not accept video job requests in Robohead.
If you are looking to produce a video for academic purposes, please contact Mark Schuknecht at firstname.lastname@example.org. For advertising and promotional videos, please contact your Marketing Strategy Account Lead.
For questions about creating a new project or who your marketing strategist is, please contact email@example.com.
