How to request a project

Step one: submit a project request form

In order to process the large amount of requests we receive we have created a project request form hosted on under “forms” on the Office of Student Involvement page on AUinvolve. You may create and submit as many project requests as you wish, there is no limit. If you have specific questions you can email Lindsay prior to submitting your request.

Step two: your designer will contact you

Once your project has been approved on AUinvolve it will be assigned to a designer based on the date it is due. Your designer will email you to introduce themselves and ask for any additional information they may need. At this point, if you have changes to your request or additions you may send them directly to your designer (always copy your advisor).

Step three: your project will be designed!

Once your designer starts working on your project you will be communicated to at each phase. Your first draft will come on a proof sheet that says “initial design” on the side. Every proof afterwards will include the words “revised design.”

Step four: final proof

Once you are happy with your design you will receive a final proof. We must have approval on this version of the proof before we can move on to the production phase. If you are ordering materials the cost and quantity will be in the gray box at the bottom of the proof sheet. If you are not ordering materials (digital graphics or t-shirt designs) we still need approval before we can send those files to you.

Step five: production

At this point, we will finish out the project process. If you have requested that materials be ordered we will communicate with vendors and let you know when your materials have been delivered. If you have only requested a digital graphic or t-shirt design we will send you the artwork at this point.
