What is Creative Services?
Creative Services is not a department. It is a new and different approach for utilizing established design, print and mail service departments at East Tennessee State University. Creative Services is the platform from which University Relations, Biomedical Communications (BMC), and ETSU Postal Services collaborate to bring your products to life. This umbrella results in an efficient, streamlined one-stop-shop environment where you can order creative projects, receive and approve cost estimates, gain Identity/Postal/ETSU Number reviews and approvals, track status from project inception through to production, and reference historical data. All the steps involved in making your creative project happen are at your fingertips on your personalized dashboard via your workstation, tablet or mobile device, 24/7. The people working within these service groups combine their ETSU institutional knowledge, resources, talent, education and industry experience in the fields of marketing, design, production and mail to provide you with a dynamic team. Together, we are ETSU Creative Services. identity . design . print . mail.
