Graphic Design Support Request

Research Development Services is excited to offer Graphic Design support to our Research Community! We now have advanced student graphic designers and science illustrators on our team available to help faculty create strategic, eye-catching print and digital materials on a per project basis. Graphic designers and science illustrators will be able to assist with the development of publication and presentation graphics, proposal graphics, and other research-related informational materials. As noted, these services are provided on a per project basis, at a rate of $13/hour, and will be billed to individual org codes provided on the intake form.

Please complete the online form below to initiate the process and help us understand your needs. While filling out the form, please keep in mind the following:

  • Graphic Design is an artistic process. Please factor in 1-week for simple graphics to your deadline; more complex graphics could take between 2-3 weeks
  • Some projects are more straightforward than others. Once you’ve completed this request form, it is likely that additional information will be needed; we will follow up with you by email within 48-hours to outline the production schedule, request any outstanding information, and if needed, set up a meeting with you to discuss further

Our graphic design team is small and made up of student workers – our resources are limited, so we may not have the capacity to take on every request, but will do our best to meet your needs.

To submit a request, please email Rebekah Hersch at
