Frequently Asked Questions

What Programs are Used?

Marketing Assistants primarily use the Adobe Creative suite, with a strong emphasis on Illustrator to realize marketing projects.  Students work on a mix of Student Life owned computers and their personal devices and have access to additional technology (iPads, Cameras, Tablets, etc) as needed.

What Skills do MAs Have?

Marketing Assistants must have (at least) a demonstrated knowledge of Adobe Illustrator and a strong understanding of visual and information hierarchy.  Additional graphic design knowledge is a plus.  Most of student life graphic designers are artists in some form or another and enjoy illustrating even outside their project list.

Can a MA do work for me?

If you need work done for an SGA-recognized club or org,  Student Life program, or Davis Center affiliate - marketing assistants can help you for FREE.  Just fill out a Marketing Request form.  MAs may be available for individual paid freelance work for UVM offices, departments, or individuals outside the aforementioned scope.
