Request for Marketing Services
The Office of Marketing and Communications can help you achieve your goals, and ensure that your marketing and communications projects and plans are coordinated with the overall brand of the University. Our staff can develop and produce projects from start to finish, or in some cases offer advice and recommend external vendors. To start a project, fill out one of the forms below.
In most cases, internal services are provided at no charge to campus offices and departments, however there is an hourly charge for graphic design services provided by Publications Services. Printing, freelance photography, advertising placement costs and materials costs are the responsibility of the individual campus offices, and will be billed directly by the vendors or by Publications Services to the requesting department. No costs will be incurred without prior consent. If you have questions, please contact the Office of Marketing and Communications at MarComm@southalabama.edu.
The form links below are for marketing services that include creative design and photography. All other requests such as business cards, letterhead, forms, reprints of existing print materials, banner, flyers, posters, event programs and signage should be directed to Publication Services.
If you have a story idea for our communications and media relations team, please use the Pitch Your Story page.
If you need Creative Services, please fill out the Creative Services Request Form, and your job will be added to the queue. If there is missing information from the form or you need to schedule a meeting, you will be contacted by Danielle Swindle.
The University does not have an on-staff photographer. If you need access to existing or general campus photography, please see the USA Photos section of our Brand website for downloadable photos, or email us at MarComm@SouthAlabama.edu.
If you need a portrait or headshot, the Office of Marketing and Communications will have a freelance photographer on campus, on the first Tuesday of each month, to take these photos for you at no cost. Advance notice of the times and locations for each month will be sent via the Daily Digest.
If you require photography services for your office or for an event, please download our Freelance Photographers list. Offices needing photography services are responsible for contacting and contracting with freelance photographers, who will bill your department directly at a rate of $75 per hour, inclusive of setup, breakdown and editing time.
If you have a need for video services, please fill out the Video Services Request Form. Submitted requests will be considered on a case by case basis, and you are encouraged to fill out the form completely so that we can determine the scope of your project.
