Studio 165+ is a professional graphic design course that aims to offer a rich academic experience with an emphasis on real-world application through design and marketing campaigns across multiple media platforms. This immersive project is part of their ongoing initiative to update or provide a branded look for each of Muncie’s neighborhoods. This semester students of Studio 165+ worked with Gatewood, Halteman Village, Westbrier, Old West End, Robinwood Estates, and Whitely. With input from residents of each neighborhood, they created a variety of materials including logos for each neighborhood to choose from, each one tailored to what makes that area of our community special–from the mid-century architecture of Halteman Village, to the open hands of Whitely.
If Studio 165+ is coming to your neighborhood soon, please fill out this brief questionnaire to help them get started on your new neighborhood identity.
