Use of University Name/Logo
The university has created very specific rules and regulations to use the Grand Valley State University name and logo in the appropriate way. The complete list can be found on the University's web site by clicking here. The Promotions Office (331-2340, Kirkhof Center 1108) or Institutional Marketing can also provide a current copy of the list.
The Promotions Office is a student-staffed graphic design, advertising and public relations department of the Office of Student Life. They can design, produce, and print any kind of publicity piece, including t-shirts, logos, stickers, buttons, web ads, posters, banners, table tents, etc. They are available to all students, staff, departments and student organizations.
Promotions Office is made up of Graphic Design, Illustration, and Advertising students, which creates the unique opportunity for fresh, quality work and affordable prices. They insure all publications are consistent with the high standards set by the university. Because of the quantity of work they do with area vendors, they are able to pass on the price break they receive with their customers.
They design the ads on the web calendar along with the table tents posted in the dining areas, downtown at DeVos Center and at the Holland campus. They are also responsible for posting on the campus posting boards, which is done weekly, and maintain them in accordance with university regulations.
Their rates are extremely reasonable and the quality is cutting edge. Student organizations wishing to publicize an event or an upcoming campus activity should meet with the Promotions Office to discuss ideas, techniques to advertise and costs. Several packages are available to help reduce cost and help the client design an effective marketing plan. If you have a project you would like the Promotions Office to assist with, please stop by the office and complete a service request. Due to the high volume of work produced by the office, the requested due date should be at least two weeks from the submission date.
