Step 2: Invitations

Creating a First Impression With Your Invitation

A well-crafted, professionally designed invitation creates a great first impression for an event, setting the tone for the experience the event will offer, and often has a larger role as part of a strategic marketing plan. Our constituents see us as one institution, so we must maintain and reinforce the University's brand in the community and have a consistency to the style, tone, and content of our communications at every level.

Consisting of a senior team of project managers, editors, designers, and production personnel, University Relations' Office of Communication functions as the central communications and publications group for the University. We are experienced in creating dynamic materials that are uniquely designed to reflect the purpose and personality of an event and that support the University's central brand identity.

To discuss project direction, budget, production schedules, and general procedures, please contact Todd Ellenberg, Assistant Vice President for Communications and Marketing at 305-284-6047 or
