As of July 1, the former Office of Communications & Publications has been renamed the Office of Marketing & Communications with Vice President Ben McDade at the helm. OMC exists as a resource for every office, department and school at Brenau. As we enter another academic year, here are a few reminders about working with OMC:
Web and social media: Assistance with external websites and website form building is one of the most common requests in our office. Most requests require three weeks notice. Michael McPeek handles all of these projects and will do his best to help you develop the right project or format for your needs as quickly as possible. McPeek also handles social media policy. Reach out to him if you have a social media question or request!
Graphic design: OMC offers departmental design services for posters, flyers, postcards, brochures, invitations, T-shirts, business cards/stationery, event programs, banners and more. While some of these projects can be printed in-house at little or no cost, we can help with pricing on any outsourced items. Most requests require three weeks notice. We also ask that any items not designed by OMC, such as T-shirts, be shared with Michael Lowe, design director, prior to printing to ensure they meet Brenau’s branding standards (colors, fonts, etc.) for external audiences.
Content and media relations: As you work on projects with McPeek and Lowe, Kristen Bowman can help you tell your story with photos and/or video from AJ Reynolds. Additionally, we ask that anyone on campus who is contacted by the media for an interview let Bowman or McDade know prior to giving the interview. We are happy to share the great work we do with the media. We just want to ensure you are prepared as you represent the university.
