Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

As a committee or commission, how can you request a website?

While we’re unable to provide a fully custom website, Creative Media would be happy to provide a Sitefarm site to ASUCD committees and commissions. In order for us to provide your committee or commission with a Sitefarm website, we ask that you sign a contract agreeing to responsibly and appropriately maintaining and updating the website as well as compiling all the basic info you would like on the site. Once the contract is signed, we’ll set up your site to adhere to ASUCD brand guidelines and give your team access to make edits. Fill out this form to request a Sitefarm site.

How can I start a project with Creative Media?

Fill out the project request form under Contact Us to request a Sitefarm site!

How can I request video, animation, or photography services?

If your project will require design, marketing, or programming in addition to video production/animation/photography, please fill out the request form on our Contact page. If your project only requires video production/animation/photography, please contact Aggie Studios, our sub-unit for video production and photography.

How much does Creative Media charge for its services?

For ASUCD organizations, our services are free of charge. If you have printing needs, however, there will be a printing charge. However, we do request payment for our services for non-ASUCD organizations.

Print costs and material specifications will be discussed in detail with and approved by the client before a print request is submitted to Creative Media’s designated printer, Reprographics.

Prints can be picked up on campus or delivered to areas on campus. To print with Reprographics, we will need your unit’s account number.

Does a client need to have a specific idea of what marketing materials they need?

No! We would be happy to brainstorm with you.

Can a unit design and print its own marketing materials?

Yes, however, if independently generated, materials must adhere to the ASUCD Brand Guide, according to Chapter 26 of ASUCD’s Bylaws, “Use of ASUCD Name and Symbols.” Failure to adhere to these standards will result in the material being taken down by Creative Media and  referral to Student Judicial Affairs/Campus Judicial Board at the discretion of the ASUCD Business Manager, according to Section 2603 of ASUCD’s Bylaws.

Who can request services from Creative Media?

We mainly work with ASUCD units, committees, and commissions. We also work with external clients or other student organizations on a case-by-case basis.

Does Creative Media retain ownership of the artwork that they’ve created?

Copyrights and ownership of any original material, including but not limited to design, copywriting, illustration, or photography, remain with the UC Regents. UC Regents retain ownership of any and all artwork created for the purposes of the contracted project.
