The Template Hub

Empower your department with on-brand templates.

The Template Hub allows University users to easily create Creighton-branded print or digital materials without any design training. A variety of popular templates are available within the Hub—flyers, posters, invitations, brochures, social media graphics and more—that are ready for you to customize and share.

The Template Hub empowers you to generate your own printed or digital pieces with the peace of mind that it follows brand guidelines.

Get what you need, on brand and faster.

Why Use the Template Hub?

This online tool enables non-designers to:

  • Create and edit documents
  • Access pre-made Creighton templates
  • Update recurring projects without any delay
  • Download and export final files
  • Have our photos, logos and icons within reach

The templates do not replace the high concept design, campaign and other work undertaken by University Communications and Marketing; they supplement with templates intended to serve quick, easy, repeatable work for common marketing materials.

We’ve created a starting point for you. Now you can take the next step—at your pace!

Creighton’s Template Hub is powered by Marq, formerly Lucidpress, a web-based drag and drop publishing application. Get started on your project by reviewing Marq’s training materials and how-to videos on their help website.

Internal Resources

UCOM has created training resources customized for Creighton users. (At the time these videos were created, Marq was called Lucidpress.)

Request a Template Design

Many categories of template designs are available for use within the Template Hub; however, if you have a recurring project or asset that you think would be a valuable template for your department or the University, please submit a project request and select "Template Hub Request” from the deliverable list.
