Point Park University's Marketing Department is the official channel for the marketing efforts of the University, including:

  • Brand Management
  • Promotional materials for external audiences, primarily for recruitment
  • Marketing (including content marketing)
  • Advertising

Marketing uses a holistic and strategic approach; upholds the University graphic standards (.PDF) and writing standards; and offers consultation and services that apply best practices in design, writing and marketing.

Requests for design, publications and projects can be submitted through Point Park’s intranet.

Note that the writing standards used by Marketing follow AP style with two exceptions: The words University and Downtown Pittsburgh are capitalized when referencing Point Park University. Questions about the graphic and writing standards should be referred to the managing director of creative services identified below.
