Communications Office Prepares New CEU Templates and Guides

CEU’s Communications Office is pleased to provide new tools to help all parts of our diverse community communicate widely and effectively about the University. Using these tools will help us increase CEU’s profile among audiences such as prospective students, prospective donors, alumni, partner institutions, NGOs, and employers.

The CEU Style Guide allows for consistency across publications in terms of how to use titles, refer to CEU and its leadership, and more. The CEU Graphics Standards Guide includes guidelines for consistency in use of the logo suite, colors and fonts. Use of these guidelines will help communicate the CEU brand, which unifies the diverse parts of the University.

The Communications Office  also offers templates to help members of the community create quality event posters and invitations. Templates are available in MS Word format, since this is the most commonly used software at CEU. There is also a How To guide to help with using these. If you prefer to use Photoshop, Eszter Deli of the Computer and Statistics Center conducts workshops on Photoshop and can advise.  The documents are accessible on the O drive (and they are attached for those who cannot access it):
