The right resource for projectsand budgetslarge and small.

Even before COVID-19, we spoke to many of youour campus partnersto ask how we could better meet your creative needs. Which is why we’re offering a new service going forward. It’s called the UChicago Creative Studio. The Creative Studio offers streamlined services and pricing for projects such as remote and on-campus video recording, creating simple layouts for digital or print, or updating content into existing templates.

The right mix.

We have a wide and varied skill set, from branding, strategy, and filmmaking to copywriting, design, and photography. Between us, we have more than 150 years of industry experience.

We may all be creative by nature, but we’re UChicagoans by choice. As such, we live and breathe the University brand and bring this deep institutional knowledge to bear on each and every project we tackle. As a value-added resource for the UChicago community, we provide you with the opportunity to tap into world-class creative talent right on your doorstep (metaphorically speaking, at least for now).
