Communications and Marketing

We are a cohesive team of creative and strategic thinkers who build Pratt’s brand and reputation through compelling stories, imagery, and branded materials. As Pratt’s in-house communications and marketing team, we collaborate with our campus colleagues, serving as strategic partners and guides to ensure that they achieve their institutional goals.

Our team manages and oversees many of the Institute’s communications and marketing areas. Our responsibilities include:

  • creative services,
  • digital news and content development,
  • media relations,
  • web and digital communications,
  • marketing and communications strategy,
  • social media, photo and video initiatives, and more.

We are eager to partner with our colleagues to promote their students and programs, to co-own the Institute’s brand with us, and to develop effective new communications channels together.

Pratt’s Visual Identity System

Pratt’s flexible visual identity system reflects our diverse and multifaceted community. We’ve provided a collection of versatile resources—logos, colors, typefaces, and more—to help you create distinctive yet consistent communications that are uniquely Pratt. 

Photography and Videography

We offer photo and video management services, creating high quality marketing and communications materials that reflect the Pratt brand for clients across the Institute. Our services include researching existing imagery and managing the coordination and creation of new photography and videography. Please complete the Identity Resources Request form (choosing the “Photography or Video Content” option) to tell us about your project.
