Missouri State recently purchased a Facebook app that allows newly admitted students to connect on Facebook. In this New Student Community app, members can build friendships, find a roommate and connect with students who share similar interests, major and housing preferences. This app ensures privacy of the user’s existing Facebook account, while allowing them to interact with other users who have been admitted. This flyer is inserted into the admitted student packet.
These Academic Program Guide flyers (aka APG) are handy guides that explain academic offerings of the departments within the College of Natural and Applied Sciences. We produced 10 program guides for Biology; Chemistry; Computer Science; Engineering; Geography, Geology and Planning; Hospitality and Restaurant Administration; Mathematics; as well as Physics, Astronomy and Material Science. These are mailed to students who inquired about the specific program, presumably after they received the Viewbook, Financial Aid guide, direct mail postcards and other more general recruitment publications. Each of this guide highlights the various reasons that make that particular program stand out in the region, successes of alumni of that program and other specific opportunities and services that the program offers.
We designed this in a template format, so the department can reorder in small quantities and make any necessary content changes. The pre-printed template or “shell” is printed off-set in large quantity and the content are printed digitally on a BW printer. We carefully chose photos that would represent the natural and applied sciences areas. The universal look of the template is designed by our former student designer, Aimee Pong; Robert Adams customize the template for CNAS; Michelle Rose wrote and edited the copy.
Every summer the shuttle routes get updated and our office helps with updating the Bear Line brochure. Bear Line brochure is handed out mostly to new students; it contains our campus map with shuttle route details, a link to the shuttle tracking app, some frequently asked questions, as well as some riding tips for commuters. Our student designer, Robert Adams, worked on this brochure. Pick up your new copy today!
All students admitted for the summer 2015 and fall 2015 semesters will receive these handy booklets that answer a lot of questions new students tend to have — from how to register for classes to parking.
Congratulations to Publications graphic designer, Abby Isackson and writer/editor, Michelle Rose, on their work on the Dinner at the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum invitation. The design earned the University and College Designers Association (UCDA) Award of Excellence and it will appear in the 2014 UCDA Design Show during the 44th Annual UCDA Design Conference, September 20-23 in Long Beach, California.
The theme for 2014-15 public affairs is The Ethical Citizen. Can You Make a Difference? The theme explores what it means to be an ethical citizen, from its concepts and practices to its implications for society. It will facilitate vital dialogue on these topics throughout the 2014-2015 academic year.
The theme logo was designed by student designer at the Student Engagement Office, Michael Crawford. The banner was designed by Publications student designer, Robert Adams. The banner will be unveiled at the upcoming New Student Convocation on August 17.
Our student designer, Robert Adams, designed these posters to be placed in area high school counselors’ offices. One poster has the generic information about becoming a Bear, and the other one has more specific costs information for Illinois prospective students. The poster is kept simple, directing prospective students to admissions’ website and our social media. Poster is 18×24 inches in size.
Recently, Missouri State Alumni Association hosted the Alumni Day at Busch Stadium in St. Louis and Alumni Night at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. The events brought together Missouri State alumni in the St. Louis and Kansas City areas to have a good time and cheer for the home teams, St. Louis Cardinals and Kansas City Royals. The purchase of a ticket include: pre-game gathering with ballpark food, game ticket (Left Field Loge seat) and an exclusive T-shirt. Our student designer, Robert Adams designed the t-shirts for both events.
The 10th annual Public Affairs Conference was held on the campus of Missouri State University on April 8-11 of this year. This year’s conference explored the theme, “Global Perspective. Why It Matters.” Publications Office contributed to the promotion of this signature event by producing several print pieces: a brochure, several NewsLeader print ads, a program, and name tags. The look and feel of these print pieces follow the identity and banner that were established last fall.
Several things that are new in this year conference program:
We increased the size (though still keeping the same number of page count) to maximize the press sheet size. As the result, we were also able to add more content. We promoted the spring Convocation Series with General Colin L. Powell as well as the Missouri Public Affairs Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, both of which are part of our 2013-14 signature event series.
