We give higher priority to projects that target larger, external audiences central to Portland State University's reputation, but we offer templates that you can use to produce your own projects and we can connect you with one of our preferred freelance vendors for projects that we cannot manage in-house.


We also produce a variety of University publications including Portland State Magazine, PSU's alumni magazine and Currently, the faculty and staff newsletter.
