About Us

We are a team of creative thinkers who thrive on challenges and excel at producing innovative solutions.

We are part of University Communications, and we know the University of Chicago brand. We live it every day.

We craft unique communications that tell your stories, engage your audiences, and raise the profile of your initiatives. Our campus-wide partnerships and intimate, widespread knowledge of the University ensure your effort becomes an important piece of the overall UChicago identity.

Whether we’ve been lucky enough to take our place in a classroom or not, we embrace the UChicago approach of asking questions, looking at a problem from all the angles, and creatively challenging ourselves and each other to reach the best solutions.

Our Process

Our creative process starts with you, our partner. We work with you to understand your goals, audience, budget—whether you have a 
specific project in mind or a broad communications challenge. Then we craft a concept and define a clear path forward, collaborating across our team of writers, editors, producers, and designers, and with 
our partners throughout the University.

The result:  Strategic, creative
 communications that achieve your goals as they convey UChicago’s distinctive character, world-changing research and education, diverse community, and inspiring mission.

Resources

As the University’s creative communications team, we aim to provide visual and editorial guidelines for University-wide use. We have created Identity Guidelines that explain how to use the University’s logo and other visual elements. Our Best Practices offer style guidance as well as tips for writing digital content and building social media sites.
