Starting a Project
Working with our office is easy. To initiate a project, please complete and send the online job requisition form or contact us and we’ll send you a PDF of the form. Upon our receipt of the completed form, we’ll quickly be back in touch with next steps. If you’d prefer to begin by meeting with us to discuss your project requirements, please call Todd Ellenberg, assistant vice president for communications, at 305-284-6047.
Baseline Services and Scheduling
To serve the needs of areas throughout the University that require high-quality services, we have job initiation deadlines to help schedule and manage the department’s workload. Depending upon the office’s workload at any given time, we may not be able to accept jobs that are not within these guidelines.
Baseline services on a job include no more than three design options, an initial proof, and two sets of revisions per job.
The client must adhere to the production schedule that will be provided shortly after meeting with their office to initiate the job. Also, the client must provide all content (copy and art) and a department account number at that time. If the client does not adhere to the production milestones, a change of the job’s completion/delivery date may be required.
We appreciate your cooperation so University Communications can best serve the needs of academic and administrative units throughout our institution.
