CALS Communications Portfolio
Putting our best paws forward.
When words alone can’t fully communicate your work, let infographics and motion graphics do the talking for you. Simplified, eye-catching graphics can effectively reach a variety of audiences and can be used in publications, media, and online.
Videos can range from short clips for social media to several minutes for Youtube and your website. For programs with particularly visually-compelling subjects, videos are very powerful communications tools for educating your audience. Videos are also great for highlighting the people, projects, or processes that are pertinent to your program.
Using the NC State-approved WordPress design theme, we can create a website for your project, program, research lab, or campaign. We can also convert old sites (ie. Google Sites) into NC State-branded websites that look more professional and are easier to maintain.
Every project and program can benefit from professional photography. Strong photography adds credibility and professionalism to your website, which goes a long way in attracting top talent and big names in philanthropy, media, and grant funding. Photoshoots include, but are not limited to, headshots, team photos, field work, lab work, locations and facilities, and events.
CALS Comm works with freelance photographers and University Communications’ photographers, Marc Hall and Becky Kirkland, for all photography requests.
Print and Digital Materials
eg. brochures, one-pagers, digests, reports, advertisements, and event materials.
Our professional designers will create your materials through a collaborative review process. For printed materials, we will work directly with the printer to print and deliver your final materials.
Our team produces and edits several CALS podcasts, including our very own Farms, Food and Food as well as the N.C. PSI’s AgTech360 podcast. Our team can write scripts, record interviews, edit, and sound-mix episodes so you can reach your audiences on this popular medium.
Farms, Food and You
Large Printed Displays
Large format displays include, but are not limited to, posters, banners, yard signs and other signage. Whether on the NC State campus or out at a field day or other event, large, eye-catching printed displays can draw people to your table/booth at an event, educate people about your lab or program, encourage people to attend an event, or compel people to learn more online.
Promotional Items (aka “Swag”)
Our designers can help you create swag for recruitment, events, clubs and more. Everything from pens and lanyards to t-shirts and stickers can be transformed into an impactful and fun piece of swag.
