Those looking to send a message can do that and more, thanks to NIU’s Graphic Design Services.

Its talented team of experienced designers captures the spirit of NIU while telling the unique and individual story of any department, college or organization.

“To have a source on campus that offers design and production eliminates overhead charges with vendors, simplifies billing and allows for faster turn-around time,” said Sophia Varcados, graphic design manager for Department of Creative Services. “We can accommodate special requests, and when last-minute event information comes in, we can quickly provide the necessary prints.”

From concept to completion, the Creative Services team supports the NIU community with captivating graphics and collateral for programs, events and exhibits.

“To help staff and faculty promote research, artistry, community and Huskie spirit is a service we are proud to provide,” Varcados said. “We listen to our clients. We talk about better ways to reach the public – to communicate. We enjoy the challenges and unique demands of our work, and we recognize the need to celebrate NIU.”

Graphic Design Services recently added a new printer to its creative arsenal, and it’s getting rave reviews. Unlike other large format printers on site, Varcados said, the new printer uses latex based inks that are heat-cured after printing, which allows them to produce materials that are waterproof, scuff resistant and more economical.

NIU’s experienced designers are ready to help you send a message – big or small – that meets your vision and budget. To request support or to start a project, fill out the Creative Services Request Form.
