Creative Services | CVMCommunications@ncsu.edu

Our goal is to execute strategic and creative development of marketing communications that support NC State Veterinary Medicine and its departments. We also maintain the university’s brand and style guidelines.

We work with the other CVM internal teams such as CVM IT and Educational Support Services to provide the college with integrated communication solutions that include creation and consultation on Web and digital communications, writing, editing and proofreading, marketing, design, medical illustration and animation, as well as video and photography.

This tool is called BrandSprokit. Please contact us if you are interested in signing up for this program.

Other graphic, design and production services can be outsourced upon request. We can provide you with contact information for NC State approved vendors based on your needs.

To produce our work we utilize Adobe InDesign, Illustrator (EPS, PDF),  Photoshop (TIFF, PNG, JPG)  and Acrobat Pro (editable and press quality PDF format). For specific questions about converting a specific format (e.g. JMP) please see Medical and Technical Illustration services below.

Medical Illustration & Animation Services

Please contact Alice MacGregor Harvey at 513-6492

Custom Medical Illustrations are created to accurately illustrate specific surgical and research findings for lay-science and peer to peer medical publications, presentations or web sites. Our medical illustrator also offers medical animation (including HTML5 Canvas interactive modules).

For additional reference and accuracy, the illustrator is available to attend surgeries and necropsies, as well as study specimens and dissections. Each project is also evaluated and created with a technique and style which best depicts the subject and is the most appropriate for the publication or usage of the piece.

Technical illustrations (e.g. medical devices, graphs, charts) can also be created from raw data and references. To make existing graphs and images publication ready, check out this helpful guide: 

NOTE:

  • This is the only professional Medical Illustrator (MA) available at NC State University (or in UNC system).
  • All illustrations and animations created are NC State copyrighted and need to be credited appropriately. Please contact us with any specific copyright and usage questions.
