“It’s a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together.”

The University Communications and Marketing (UCM) team is made up of a talented and dedicated group of professionals working together to provide excellent communications and marketing services and shared expertise for the University of West Georgia.

We support the UWG Mission, Vision and Strategic Imperatives by promoting the University of West Georgia’s brand through the creation of professional and effective print pieces, digital projects, photos, videos and event production. One of our primary goals is to ensure consistency in messaging across all forms of communication and marketing.

Not sure exactly what you need? We can help develop ideas and a plan that will work with your budget, and most importantly, be effective for you. Our areas of expertise are outlined below.

Graphic Design

Our professional Graphic Design team can help you reach the masses and share what people need to know about your department, program or new initiative. We are the experts in the look, feel and tone of UWG. We can help you apply the university brand to your project, ensuring consistent messaging and feel, while taking advantage of the exposure created by the Go West campaign.

Our designers produce stunning visual work and strategic guidance for a wide range of collateral including: brochures, posters, banners, postcards, invitations and custom designed materials. There is no charge for our design services, but you are responsible for any printing costs.

Any external print or electronic materials or advertising must be designed by UCM’s professional design team in order to comply with the UWG Brand Identity Policy. Select internal materials that are for on-campus use only may be designed internally. See the Brand Guidelines for specific details.

Photography & Videography

Whether you need dynamic stills, video to capture an event or portraits of your faculty and staff, our expert photographers and videographers are the lensmasters whose work records, promotes and inspires. Our team works to visually capture the stories of campus, shift perceptions and share the successes of UWG.

Our team is responsible for capturing the people, places and events of UWG that advance the image of the university to its external constituents. We prioritize coverage as follows:

  • Projects and publications produced by University Communications & Marketing
  • Key university-wide events and initiatives that support the strategic goals of UWG
  • Official UWG portraiture
  • Special projects

Requests must be scheduled on a first-come-first-served basis, although priority events may take precedence. We reserve the right to request proofs of publications for any images requested and photo credits where applicable in external news outlets.

University events not covered by the Photography/Videography Team include events not pertaining to the external promotion of UWG. These events will not be covered by our team, for example; internal celebrations, banquets, retirement receptions, informal or non-university sponsored events, meetings and trainings.

The Photography Studio is located directly beside the Design Studio on Maple Street.

Event Production

This team is action-packed. Literally! Have you seen the amazing graphics at one of our football games or professionally developed video presentations at an event on campus? These were made by the talented Event Production team.

We are responsible for all content, including still, motion and 3D graphics, and live and pre-produced video, displayed on the digital boards at University Stadium, UWG Coliseum and the outdoor electronic message boards.

Working directly with UWG Athletics and other departments, we provide video production support for large-scale university events, including home football, basketball and volleyball games, as well as more formal events such as commencement ceremonies.
