University of San Diego, School of Law Selects Diablo Custom Publishing to Produce Advocate Magazine

Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — The University of San Diego (USD) School of Law has selected Diablo Custom Publishing (DCP) to produce Advocate magazine. Advocate magazine was previously written and designed by external agencies. DCP will now be responsible for all facets of publishing Advocate magazine, and it will be produced two times per year. The first redesigned publication produced by DCP was released in January 2012.

Advocate magazine is published to inform, engage, and maintain relationships with students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Keeping the 14,000 alumni updated on USD’s happenings and commitment and sharing profiles of alumni making a difference in the world are essential goals of the publication. In addition, Advocate magazine is a key platform for providing faculty insights and opinions in order to keep students informed on campus law events and achievements.

“USD School of Law chose DCP because of its unique depth of expertise in producing higher-education publications and its breadth of core competencies in edit, design, project management and various forms of content delivery,” notes Ashley Vitale, Director of Communications for USD School of Law. “It was quite evident after our first meeting that the staff at DCP understood our goals, objectives and the importance of our core values. We appreciated the collaboration, communication and commitment.”

The redesign welcomes a refreshed design and dynamic editorial, while maintaining the sophistication and professionalism emblematic of the standard that the USD School of Law brand reflects. Magazine content includes: Dean’s Message, Campus Briefs, Faculty Footnotes, Calendar, and several other departments and features that are central to USD School of Law’s core messaging.
