Design Services for Lake Forest College

We are dedicated to promoting the Lake Forest College brand with clear messaging and creative design. We will provide direction and strategy as we partner with you to develop and execute your projects in a timely manner.

Communications and Marketing works closely with Visual Communications. All print projects will be sent to Visual Communications to be produced once they are approved to print. It takes more time than you might think to complete any design project, so please don’t delay in contacting us. Keep in mind that high-priority recruitment projects may take priority over other projects. 

Before you order design services, please have:

  • A primary contact person or project manager. Someone who will partner with the designer until the project is complete.
  • A  proper due date for your project. When do you need a finished product in hand?
  • A clear understanding of the final product. What size is it? What material do you want it to be? Will it be mailed? Is it a digital file only?
  • Budget approval for the product being ordered. Print prices vary and usually get cheaper as the quantity gets higher.  Visual Communications can help you with pricing and vender sourcing, if you need that assistance.
  • Complete copy that has been proofed against the College Style Guide and approved by your departmental team. 
  • Images and graphics that you want included. Find headshots of speakers or proper logos of potential sponsors.
