Creative Services

Below are protocols and forms for requesting branded merchandise and other creative services for college programs and events.

Requesting Creative Services & Marketing

  • Requesting full marketing services for CCAD programs & events starts by filling out the Creative Services form.
  • Please note the creative services form includes everything from print production to email marketing and PR because most programs and events utilize a combination of these services (click for full list).
  • When to fill out the form? ASAP!—six months to a year in advance is not too soon to start the planning process. With that said, a minimum of three months is requested. We do realize that things come up and may need to be done more quickly. If you have a project that needs done earlier than three months, schedule a meeting asap and we will do our best to accomodate you. In general, the sooner we know, the better we can fit your project into the annual production schedule and the better we can serve you.
  • While you may not know all the details of your program or event, requesting all services at once ensures that we can develop a holistic marketing plan and timeline and implement it in an efficient, cost-effective, and timely manner.
  • The Marketing & Communications staff will get in touch with you after receiving your form.

Requesting College-Branded Merchandise

In an effort to ensure brand integrity and to save money through leveraged agreements with vendors, the college has instituted a centralized approval process for branded items (e.g. t-shirts, mugs, promotional items). This process applies to all college departments and student organizations for anything that represents the college or carries the school name/logo. Please allow a minimum of three months to complete this process from start to finish.
