RIT Web developers are encouraged to make use of already existing RIT branded text, photography, and video content: it is simple, reduces development costs, and aligns with RIT’s branding messages. The writing, media, and design of these existing assets has been reviewed and approved by many people who are knowledgeable about RIT’s brand message and look. The three departments listed below are major sources of existing RIT branded assets.
The Office of University Publications collaborates with all RIT colleges and many divisions and departments across campus on the design and development of RIT’s official publications. It, along with ETC Production Services, contracts with many colleges, divisions, and departments in the design and development of official RIT websites. University News Services (UNS) provides ongoing news content and photography for RIT’s official websites.
