Tired of your old headshot?

University Marketing and Communication will hold a drop-in head shot session at the Lake Shore Campus on Tuesday, August 19th, from 1:00pm – 5:00pm. This session will be held at the Sullivan Center in Conference Room 126.

Please ask any LSC faculty or staff to come by at their convenience if they would like to have their photo portraits taken. Appointments during these shoot hours are not necessary. Each headshot session will take approximately 10 minutes. In alignment with UMC standards, these head shots will be taken against a white backdrop.

Questions? Please contact UMC Operations Manager Sheri Fox at: sfox5@luc.edu

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.
