Custodial history

The records were transferred to the Archives in two boxes of loose items in 2015 by Creative Studio, a successor to LIDC that was eventually incorporated into University Communications and Marketing in 2014. The contents, however, reflect work by LIDC, as well as by its Creative Services / Creative Studio successor.

Scope and content

Series consists of publications and other printed materials created by LIDC and its predecessors for SFU client departments. LIDC graphic designers worked with SFU departments and faculty members to create prints materials to support university communications, faculty teaching, research and publication, campus events and departmental programs. This series comprises sample copies retained by LIDC as a kind of portfolio of work. The dates range from 1999 to 2014, with the bulk concentrating on the years 2008-2012.

Publications and events represented include SFU Open Houses in 2008 and 2012; the President's annual Faculty Lecture (2006-2010) and the Distinguished Leadership Award ceremonies (2007-2012); reports to the SFU community by the President, the Alumni Association, University Advancement, and SFU Woodward's Vancity Office of Community Engagement; SFU News supplements for the Office of Aboriginal People (2011, 2012); books produced on special occasions to honor SFU community members, including President Michael Stevenson (2010), Chancellor Brandt C. Louie (2011), and donor Djavad Mowafaghian (2011); alumni and donor events; academic programs and workshops, including the Canadian Centre for Studies in Publishing annual Summer Workshops (1999, 2007-2010); and a book project for Continuing Studies entitled History of Sex Work Vancouver: Who We Were / Who We Are (ca. 2006).

Record types include posters, invitations, brochures, reports and books, program catalogues and university promotional materials.
