Creative Services

A strong visual identity helps to unify and strengthen Delgado Community College as an institution of academic excellence. This is important in attracting students and faculty, and ensuring community support. It is for this reason that all creative content representing the College to off-campus entities must come through or be approved by the Office of Communications, Marketing, and Public Relations. CMPR team members work with college-wide constituents to ensure accuracy and quality. The CMPR team will provide you with the best possible products in a timely and cost-effective manner. Our professional staff works with outside vendors to ensure that your project is completed to the highest standards possible, for the best price available.

Procedures and Processes

The Office of Communications, Marketing, and Public Relations serves the entire College and receives hundreds of requests per year. To meet each of these requests in a timely manner, planning and scheduling are critical. Typically, projects are completed on a first-come, first-served basis. Please email at least two weeks in advance of the date needed to request production of graphic design and/or printed materials. Please also email to place orders for stationery and business cards.

Note that projects costing $5,000 or more must go through the College’s established bidding process, which can take up to 21 days, depending on the cost of the job. Bids are sent to at least five vendors to achieve the best price. You will need to enter a purchase requisition and obtain a purchase order through the Purchasing Office. This process can take up to a week or longer.
