Hope to see you all for the new brand unveiling, tomorrow, Friday, February 26 at 1:30 p.m. in the Opie Reading Room of the library. There will be goodies and freebies! You were some of the first to see and hear about our new visual identity and messaging, so we’d love to see you there for the big day! If you cannot check it our in person, it will be live-streamed and viewable here: mtu.edu/future.
Photography day! University Photographer Sarah Bird shared some tips on how to obtain and use University photos, how to set up your own photos to look their best, and a few fun tricks. (Did you know that if a photo looks dark on your iPhone, you can increase the exposure to brighten the area? Just click on the focal point, and swipe up.) Then Becky Barnard (Digital Services Specialist, UMC) gave a quick run-through of how to use these photos on social media, and the importance of sizing.
