Creative Services is an arm of Marketing and Communications and is comprised of several departments that work together to write, edit, design, print, and mail brochures, catalogs, fliers, booklets, ads, newsletters, invitations, posters, calendars, and business cards, along with maintaining the Hofstra website and producing photo and video content.
Graphic designers work closely with clients to best communicate their message in print. The University has a large and growing library of photographs to use in design.
Editors help Hofstra faculty, administrators, and staff to polish their prose and provide fact-checking on all University matters.
