Branding when Time & Budget are Limited


Published on

When I joined the Public Service Center at MIT, we didn't have a consistent look and our visual materials varied greatly in quality across the 10 programs we ran. My first mandate was to streamline, create guidelines and best practices and elevate our print collateral overall. We had no funds to outsource this and our first publicity materials needed to go out in just a few weeks.

This presentation outlines how I tackled this challenge and some key pointers anyone can use in a similar situation.
