• The design request is submitted and email confirmation from Fine Arts Design is sent to the client
  • The Fine Arts Design Art Director reviews the submission and assigns a Fine Arts Design designer to the design request
  • The Fine Arts Design designer will contact the client via phone or email to confirm instructions, quantities and deadlines and to review submitted files. If printing is desired from University Printing Services, the Fine Arts Design designer will obtain price quotes.
  • After consultation with the client the Fine Arts Design designer will develop an initial layout of the design. At this stage of the project, the layout may be a sketch, tight comprehensive marker layout, or digital proof. Prior to contacting the client to review the initial design layout, the Fine Arts Design designer will obtain internal approval for the design working in consultation with the Fine Arts Design Art Director and/or faculty advisor
  • Upon internal approval of the layout comp, the Fine Arts Design designer will contact via email or meet with the client personally to review the design and to present any requested printing quotes
  • The client will either approve the design or not. Suggestions and alterations can be made at this time
  • The Fine Arts Design designer will modify the design if requested and the designer will consult with the Fine Arts Design Art Director and/or faculty advisor for internal design approvals
  • Upon internal approval of the revised/modified design, the Fine Arts Design designer will contact via email or meet with the client personally to review the design modifications and to seek client approval.  NOTE: This process can, if allowed, repeat multiple times until a client is satisfied with a design, but Fine Arts Design designers work very limited hours per week and as a result, Fine Arts Design limits the client to only two proofs
  • Upon client approval of the design, the Fine Arts Design designer will produce and provide the client a .pdf set-up for the appropriate output method (offset Litho, Inkjet or Laser printing)

NOTE: the Fine Arts Design designer will implement an internal content proofing process if the design request originates within the ART, MUSIC and THEATRE departments. Fine Arts Design is not responsible for content proofing from any other departments, programs or student groups across the university
