Publications and Graphic Design
The publications and design team produces publications that reflect the excellence of the University’s students, faculty, staff, and alumni, while being produced economically and on time. NOTE: University Relations concentrates its efforts on those publications that will have the greatest impact on the greatest number of people, particularly current and prospective students.
Guidelines on the appropriate use of Eastern’s school colors; logo, seal, and crest; and other related graphic identity issues are under development. In the meantime, for answers to specific questions regarding appropriate usage of University graphics, please consult Kevin Paquin, Design and Publications Officer (465-4520; firstname.lastname@example.org) or Edward Osborn, Director of University Relations (465-5043; email@example.com).
