College Brochures & Other Publications

Public Relations works with college groups to design, write/edit, and produce college print publications, including brochures, posters, manuals, direct mailers, advertisements, catalogs, among many other publications. Following a standard brochure template to present photos and content, brochures are designed for college units using unique design elements, photos, colors, and layout to make each program recognizable. To schedule time to discuss your print projects with our Graphic Designer, call ext. 1633 or e-mail mgarcia@santarosa.edu.

Insider Internal Newsletter

If you have news about a program or you want to promote to faculty and staff, forward information to Public Relations by noon on the first and third Tuesday of each month for inclusion in the internal newsletter, Insider, which is published on approximately the 1st and 15th of each month. Call ext. 4679 or e-mail information to emaremontsilver@santarosa.edu.

Web Design

The College’s Web site is an increasingly important source of information and image building about and for SRJC. Since 2003, Public Relations has continued to work with college units to redesign the college Web pages, the home page, and top level sites. Web development occurs in close collaboration between Public Relations and college units. PR works closely with IT to ensure all Web standards are met in order to launch each site. Any program developing Web sites must use Web guidelines provided by IT (PDF) as well as PR’s departmental Web guidelines. When you are ready to design your Web site, give Public Relations a call at ext. 4679. Instructional departments can contact CATE for free Web development work and training at 522-2664.

Editorial Style Guide

The SRJC Editorial Standards outline the preferred usage standards and preferences for the college community. PR wrote the SRJC Editorial Standards to assist employees in producing consistent, well written college documents, publications, and Web sites that are reflective of a quality educational institution. The SRJC Editorial Standards offers many helpful tips on the correct use of punctuation and writing. Since the English language often changes as well as usage standards, this guide will have periodic additions and deletions of information.

Displays and Banners

PR will lend high quality red and blue banners that include SRJC’s official logo and portable displays and photo boards that work together to create an impressive professional exhibit that’s easy to set up. To reserve use of these items, call ext. 4266. PR will help units order new banners for their programs.

Logo and Graphic Standards

SRJC identity standards are designed to protect the integrity of the College logo and other identity elements through a graphic and editorial standards process that promote the quality and consistency of college publications and the Web site. For more information about the SRJC Graphic Standards, contact ext. 1633.
