We create, uphold and promote Bishop’s University’s visual identity through design and logos, and coordinate graphic design, photography and videography services.


We are the gatekeepers of the University’s branding identity. We maintain and promote the unique personality and visual identity of Bishop’s University across a variety of platforms.

Social media

We help academic and administrative units within Bishop’s University to determine the best way to use social media to connect with an external, consumer audience as well as among smaller, internal groups.

Media relations

We bring you the latest campus news, and help you find experts for your stories. Consult the Experts Directory.

BU Stories

We help promote news, events, announcements and more to the Bishop’s community and beyond. If you have a story about BU students or alumni, or if you are a faculty member or staff and have a story our community would appreciate, please share it with us!

The stories we are most looking for will celebrate student life at Bishop’s across all departments and classrooms, will reflect the diversity of our campus community, and will have a particular focus on academic excellence, student experience, our campus and natural environment, and the BU community.
