To inform students, staff, and faculty how they’ve been making efforts to improve the student experience by making it more personal, Portland State University enlisted Deep Sky to produce an animated awareness video to push through their existing university channels.
PSU wanted students to know that they’ve been listening to their concerns, and have implemented four key applications designed to “turn college stress into college success” based on their feedback. So Deep Sky worked closely with the university to create a video concept that was entertaining and informative while sincerely expressing PSU’s dedication to helping their students succeed.
Communicating a lot of information through a brief script, translating complex infographics into simplified visuals, and ensuring smooth transitions took some finessing, but ultimately resulted in an engaging tool to help build excitement and momentum towards PSU’s new processes. With their forward-thinking approach, it’s no surprise PSU is one of the top 10 most innovative schools in the U.S.!
