Tired of your old headshot?

On the first Friday of every month, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., the UMC Multimedia team is available to photograph headshots. There is no scheduling necessary, however, if you can send an e-mail to nbattaglia@luc.edu to let us know if you plan on stopping by, we'd appreciate it. Our studio is located on the 14th floor of Lewis Towers, Room 1413. Please note that for the month of July, we will be available to take your photos on Friday, July 11.

Brand and Graphic Standards

A consistent brand promise that is understood and internalized within an organization is better understood by external audiences as well. It then becomes a rallying cry and a focal point to inform and inspire everyone connected to the brand.
