Excellence. Innovation. Integrity.

We believe that our continuous pursuit of excellence, innovation and integrity in marketing will position our team as Christian leaders changing our world and, in turn, strengthen the university in its call to globally equip Christian leaders.

Data-Driven Lead Generation

Marketing supports university-wide enrollment initiatives through targeted, data-driven lead generation.

Marketing Strategy & Concept Development

As part of the marketing process, you are encouraged to meet with our team of experts to map out a marketing strategy for your project. This is the first step toward successful advertising.

Copywriting & Copy Editing

We offer assistance with copywriting and provide copy-editing for all marketing materials. When requesting a job, please provide completed copy, or at least copy points. If significant copywriting assistance is required, the client should budget to hire a recommended freelance copywriter.

Design & Layout

Once the copy is approved, we move into the design and layout phase of your project. Based on the information you submit, the marketing strategy and the budget that is defined, we design the piece to meet these objectives. Since most of our materials travel together, we strive to keep everything consistent with the overall Regent brand. Once the layout is approved internally, it is forwarded to you for your approval. No more than three rounds of changes are allowed on any project. Once final approvals are received, the project will move to production.

Web Design & Web Content Management

Combining brand consistency with aesthetic usability, University Marketing creates web materials for your school or department. Our services include: HTML emails, landing pages, microsites, animations, banners, web ads and website design/redesign. We specifically concentrate on the front-end phase of web production by strategizing and executing the visual “look and feel” and by creating web templates. Web templates are then passed off to the appropriate web representative of your school or department for content population.

Print Production for Marketing Collateral

Once the layout and size of a piece is approved, University Marketing sends out the print specifications to a number of vendors. Based on the best price and delivery, we will send you an estimate for approval. We often price a number of quantity options so you can choose the best cost and quantity for your project. The cost/quantity approval needs to be sent back to production from a person with signature authority along with delivery information and the account code for charging. Once we receive this approval, we send the project to the vendor and a purchase order is provided by the purchasing department. Final press proofs are approved by the production manager prior to printing, and the job is often approved at press. The production manager will advise you when to expect project delivery based on the size of the piece and the quantity ordered.

Videography & Photography

Regent University Marketing provides photography and videography services for general marketing purposes including: advertisements, prospectuses, direct mail, digital communications, Public Relations, and other recruitment and/or fundraising purposes. We may recommend outsourcing for complex photography or videography needs related to advertising projects or if a Regent Marketing staff members are not available. Outsourcing could incur additional fees.

Media Buying

We offer media buying for media purchases including digital, print and broadcast, and follow through to ensure that the materials are sent for each media placement. However, you are responsible for opening jobs for each ad insertion, providing an adequate timeline and project details.

Primary Logo

The primary Regent University logo, used for most applications, contains two elements, the wordmark and the shield. They should never be separated or altered, but always used as seen here.

Regent University's primary logo.

The Shield

The Regent shield symbolizes the coming together of faith and reason, and illustrates the relationship between academic excellence and Christian leadership. The three crowns stand on the side of faith representing the holy Trinity, and the book pages represent our academic offerings.

The Regent University shield.

Size & Clear Space

Consistent use is critical to the launch of a new logo and brand. Following these simple guides will ensure a clear and compelling visual brand across all levels of University communications.

PREFERRED SIZE

Whenever possible, use the preferred logo size on all applications. Never reproduce the logo at widths smaller than 1.25 inches or 200 pixels. There is no maximum size limit, but use discretion when sizing the logo. It should never be the dominant element on the page; instead it should live comfortably and clearly as a signature.

CLEAR SPACE

We need to ensure that clear space is maintained around the logo. That way, it’s always legible and has room to breathe. Photos, text, and graphic elements must follow this guideline. Use the crest as shown to gauge the preferred clearance.

Use the illustration below as a guide for placing the logo in a layout.

Primary Logo With Tagline

Download

Our tagline is a powerful statement that creates a strong impression of the university. It should be used in all communications that reach the general public, particularly admissions audiences. The logo and tagline alone can also succinctly convey the university’s mission when no other messaging appears. When they’re combined, the logo and tagline form a single unit that should not be altered. The logo without the tagline may still be used for internal audiences.

The tagline lockups below should not be combined with the sub-brand lockups.

Sub-Brand Logo Lockups

In an identity system, consistency is key to overall brand recognition. All of these logo lockups exist as a uniform system, consistently maintaining hierarchy between the logo and the school name.

Each official sub-brand should use only the approved and supplied version of its lockup. Except for the tagline, the names of the schools and official offices are the only elements permitted to be locked up with the Regent University logo.

WHEN TO USE

A sub-brand logo lockup should only be used when all the content in the respective piece correlates to that school. Whenever you are communicating to more than one school or audience, use the primary logo.

EXAMPLES OF ACCEPTABLE USE

Email Signature Best Practices

Keep It Professional

Regent University email is not a forum for personal expression through the use of fancy typefaces, images, graphics, favorite scripture verses or quotations, etc. In order to preserve and promote the brand of Regent University, it is recommended to observe the following guidelines.

Fonts

Legibility is most important. Use common, legible fonts such as Calibri, Arial, Verdana (sans-serif), Times New Roman, Cambria or Georgia (serif). Avoid using decorative, elaborate, script or ornate typefaces.

Colors

Black type is the most legible and recommended text color for your signature. Darker gray shades are also acceptable. Avoid the use of background color on your emails. Not only does it limit legibility, but high levels of ink usage can occur when emails are printed.

Logos, Images and Graphics

Due to standard privacy settings, some email clients store images as attachments rather than displaying them. Others may distort or exclude the logo, image or graphic altogether. If you choose to include the logo in your signature, it is best to use the following absolute URL to insert the logo in the proper place: http://www.regent.edu/images/general/Ru_logo_emailsig.jpg. This will maintain consistency of use and proper sizing. Creating a signature as a graphic image is discouraged. Again, most email clients store images as attachments and your signature graphic will not be seen unless the recipient allows it. Also, if you present your signature as an image, your correspondents will have a hard time knowing when you have sent a genuine attachment.

Quotes, etc.

The use of personal favorite quotations or scripture verses, etc. in Regent University email signatures is discouraged. It adds unnecessary length to the signature. This is perfectly acceptable for personal correspondence, however, it is not considered a professional best practice.

Social Media

Only reference official* Regent University pages and sites. Do not include personal IM, Facebook or Twitter, links, etc. or any sites not recognized as an official social media site. Also, do not include personal URLs. Again, this should only be done in text format with an embedded hyperlink.

*Official page links are:

Email Signature Logo File

Please remember that according to reported best practices, it is best not to use logos, images and graphics in email signatures. This is due to the fact that most standard privacy settings and most email clients store images as attachments rather than displaying them, and your signature graphic will not be seen unless the recipient allows it. Also, your correspondents will have a hard time knowing when you have sent a genuine attachment.

If it is however, important to include the logo in your email signature, you can download the file (by using the download button above) or you can use the following absolute URL:
