Visual Identity Standards - Photography
Quality photographic images are critical for positive first impressions, whether they are on a web page, a brochure, or a book.
Consider what images might appeal best to your audience. Is a group photo of your faculty really relevant to a high school student? Will a potential donor be moved by a distant shot of a speaker at a podium? Will alumni be impressed by bored-looking attendees at a luncheon? People should be engaged in some pursuit or be posed naturally.
