MARIEMONT SCHOOL FOUNDATION | ENVIRONMENTAL GRAPHIC DESIGN
Donor recognition display designed for the Mariemont School Foundation functions as shelter and sitting area as well as celebrating donors.
The Mariemont School Foundation is a private group of parents, businesses and residents that sponsor a variety of school initiatives to maintain and improve Mariemont’s award-winning school district. Tasked with designing and producing an outdoor recognition display, we wanted our design to provide recognition to past donors while inspiring new donors and donations.
Our solution for the recognition display utilizes colors and shapes that invoke the distinctive hexagon-themed Mariemont High School architecture. Individual tiles are color-coded in the school’s brand colors to denote four levels of contributions. Repeat donors can cluster their tiles to form larger shapes. Photo panels are interspersed to add an emotional tie back to the students. A bench was integrated into the design to give the piece the practical function of a bus stop/shelter.
