Whether you’re sending an event invite, newsletter or one-time announcement, UCLA has pre-made templates optimized for current content and design best practices. For detailed instructions on how to use each template, refer to the User Guide PDF included with each template download.
The event standard template works for a variety of event marketing communications: invitations, reminders, surveys and thank-you emails. It contains basic building blocks (header, title, copy) as well as additional, optional content blocks (hero image, speakers, add-to-calendars, sponsors and related info). Use or remove any sections marked “optional” to suit your needs.
Use this simple event template to create save-the-date and invitation emails that require minimal copy, including lectures, panels, discussions and performances.
The announcement template works for general, non-event, non-periodical communications such as letters, announcements, reports, donor communications and calls for volunteers.
For announcements and events where campus units display other graphics in addition to a department logo, follow the examples in these templates.
