Create office communications with Marq, a web-based, desktop publishing software (formerly known as Lucidpress). Marq allows NMSU departments to quickly create professional materials that follow NMSU brand standards.

Through Marq, you design your own files, get them approved by Marketing and Communications, and then download the files for printing. The easy-to-use software is accessible through web browsers — no need to download or install anything. Marq also provides the campus community direct access to NMSU designers, who offer real-time support.

We recommend this software to people who frequently create materials such as postcards, posters, flyers and small brochures for their colleges or departments. Not only will you be able to develop materials quickly, but you can also trust that the NMSU branding is correct and current so that you can focus on distinguishing your department with your message. Licenses for Marq are on a first-come, first-served basis. To request a license or for more information, email

A note on typeface and templates: You may notice that the Tahoma typeface is used on PowerPoint templates available on the NMSU Brand website. That allows the file you create to be shared outside NMSU or displayed on other computers — some systems don’t have Gotham or Open Sans typefaces installed.

Email Signatures

Email is among the most common communication materials sent out by the NMSU community to the public. In support of the NMSU brand, faculty and staff members are encouraged to utilize the Tahoma font. Size of text should be at least 12 pt.

Many email clients do not automatically display images therefore we advise using only text in your email signature line.  If you choose to include an image, we recommend the official NMSU logo.
