Few things are more effective than an informed and engaged citizenry. Recognizing this, the Public Affairs Office (PAO) is committed to providing accurate, consistent and pertinent information that leads to increased participation, understanding, and engagement among internal and external audiences throughout the city of Jacksonville. As time and resources permit, PAO offers support to City departments with the creation of communications tools and marketing materials. 

When requesting graphic design support, please keep the following in mind:

  • minimum of two weeks’ notice is required for creation and delivery of the first proof of your project. Last minute requests will not be considered. Depending on the complexity of your project, more time may be required. Our turn-around varies and is contingent on other projects in the queue. We will alert you if the project deadline needs to be adjusted.

  • You are solely responsible for the production of your project, which includes selecting a vendor, obtaining print quotes and securing a purchase order. 

  • All graphic design projects are created using Adobe software (Photoshop, Indesign or Illustrator). This means that the requesting department will not be able to edit or modify the final files unless they have access to, and a proficiency with, these programs. If your department requires editable files, PAO encourages you to create your own design in Microsoft Word, Publisher or Canva. We will be happy to look over your work to ensure it complies with the design standards outlined in the communications style guide

  • All fields (except those marked "if applicable") are MANDATORY. When filled out and submitted correctly you will be directed to a confirmation page. If you are not automatically directed to the confirmation page, it means the form has not been submitted. Please review to make sure you did not miss any fields.
