The Brick

Co-designed The Brick, a publication for all incoming freshman students of NC State University. Using text and imagery provided by a freshman class dedicated to the creation of the publication, we worked to create a publication that would introduce the University to new students. One downfall of the student provided imagery was that they neglected to photograph any people.To work around this, we utilized silhouettes and asked that an introduction be written asking students to imagine themselves at NC State as one of the silhouettes. We created an easy to use tab-based navigation system to allow students the ability to quickly reference the publication while walking around campus. Rather than devoting an entire section to a University time line, we distributed the time line throughout the publication. The publication won an award from the AIGA Raleigh/Charlotte Boom! Design competition.
