The Graphics Studio staff work with the client from design development to the production of print/web and course revitalisaton materials. Private and public sector organisations work directly with our talented, professionally trained graphic designers. We listen, we discuss, we advise and we provide design solutions for the client's specific requirements, in line with resource constraints. Samples of the work of Graphics Studio staff are available via Our Portfolio.
The design process involves the following steps:
Client contacts the Studio Manager
to discuss the project and set up a meeting.
Client meets with the Studio Manager and the designer with the skills most appropriate for the project for an extensive discussion of the scope the project.
Design and print quotes are generated by the Graphics Studio and delivered to client for approval. (Please note that unless prior allowance has been sought, a minimum of 10 working days needs to be allowed for publications to be printed through USQ Printing Services);
Initial proof designed and presented in an appropriate medium (eg colour proof or Adobe Acrobat .pdf file for computer viewing).
Designer and client make contact or meet again to discuss any additions or changes, following which further proofs will be provided;
Subsequent to client approval of the design, artwork is completed and printed or delivered to the required service provider; and
Design services in the Graphics Studio are at no cost to the client. Any material required will be charged at COST RECOVERY ONLY. An official quote will be sent out to clients, when cost centre information is approved the job will proceed.
Text for your project should be provided preferably as a formatted Word document, either emailed or provided on disk (CD,DVD, USB or zip). Logos, images or other digital files should be provided in the format advised by the Studio Manager or your Designer.
