ALUMNI TEAM CREATES NEW BRANDCENTER IDENTITY
In September, we proudly unveiled a project that has been a year in the making: our new brand identity. The entire refresh—which includes the logo, font, color palette, and other brand materials—was created by a team of Brandcenter alums at Arts & Letters Creative Co. We are so grateful for the time and energy they poured into this great work.
THANK YOU: RECENT ALUMNI DONORS
Thanks to these alums for their generous contributions towards Brandcenter scholarships:
BRANDCENTER x WAATBP
A team of ten Brandcenter students were asked to develop the digital marketing strategy for The One Club for Creativity's Where Are All the Black People? conference—but they didn't stop there. The students went above the ask and crafted all of the digital assets used to promote the event, including a video manifesto and social media filters for participants to utilize. They also explored what it might look like to extend the conference beyond the three days, building out a microsite to monitor agency diversity.

BAGEL BITES // CAN WE ALL AGREE ON THAT?
How do dogs wear pants? Are clowns silly or scary? There are some things we may never agree on, but it's safe to say that Bagel Bites are, simply put, "Pizza on a Bagel," as declared in the new campaign from alums Anna French (ST, 2019), Johnny Roelofs (ST, 2013), and their team at Johannes Leonardo.
