Michigan Creative

Internal Service Providers

Michigan Creative is the largest provider of creative services to the U-M community. As a unit of the Office of the Vice President for Communications, we have a deep knowledge of higher education, U-M, key initiatives and all of the university’s communication networks and resources. This allows us to “hit the ground running” and create the most insightful and effective work for all of our U-M clients.

MORE THAN AN AGENCY                      

We’re just like an ad agency, but we’re more than that. We’re Michigan. We know the history and traditions of the past, and the goals and aspirations for the future. We’re part of the Michigan community — just like you.

We regularly partner with other major units, including admissions, development, student life and government affairs, to develop strategic, integrated communications and marketing plans that support U-M’s mission.

Our award-winning team of writers, designers, account managers, photographers, web and video professionals provide a full range of creative services, including:

·        Digital Marketing

·        Integrated Marketing Campaigns

·        Print + Graphic Design

·        Web + Digital

·        Video

·        Photography

·        Social Media

Since we’re already part of the university, it’s also easy to work with us. We’re located near campus so meeting and collaborating on projects is never a problem and we bill directly to U-M accounts via shortcode. In addition, as a not-for-profit U-M unit, our rates are often less than our commercial competitors.
