My department wants to produce materials in-house or hire someone to design them for us. Is there an approval process?

There is an approval process based on the audience for your communication.

Internal communications

If your project is for campus use and will be distributed only to internal Portland State University audiences, follow the recommendations outlined in the identity standards guide. No further approval is required.

External communications

If your project is for exernal use and will be distributed broadly, adhere to the following approval process:

  1. Check in with University Communications to discuss your communication needs and for advice on the best way to produce your project.
  2. Once designed, deliver your project to University Communications for review.
  3. Once your project is approved, produce it as planned and send University Communications a sample of the final product.
  4. If you've made revisions, return to University Communications for subsequent review and approval.
