Good design takes time. We encourage you to plan ahead so that you have materials you need developed in time for your event. Here are our guidelines for graphic design projects:
• For design of web graphics (banner ads), plan a minimum of two weeks from the date on which we receive all information details to complete a design.
• For posters, plan a minimum of three weeks (from date on which we receive all details) to produce design concepts that meet your approval, and then print posters in time for distribution.
•For advertisements, rack cards, brochures, pop-up banners, hanging banners and other printed materials – plan a minimum of four weeks to design and print quality products.
• For writing assistance of brochures or articles, plan for 3-4 weeks to complete a draft, which allows us to make revisions and finalize material.
• For photography requests, contact University Relations at least four weeks before the date of the event. Photographer requests are subject to availability. Photographs taken for University Relations are intended for use in publications and marketing that are directly related to Northern.
For all other projects, please contact us to inquire about project schedule requirements at least four weeks before your materials are needed.
Please note: Requests are processed in the order in which we receive them. For requests that do not meet submission guidelines, we cannot guarantee completion by your deadline.
