Collegiate approached us in need of a complete transformation for SPARK, their alumni magazine, and various brand components. We jumped at the challenge.

our first steps

The overhaul process began with lots of Q&A, developing concept work, and presenting directly to their board. Our ideas were well received and with a little fine-tuning we were on our way.

full-speed ahead

We worked hand-in-hand with the Editor to give this pillar of the Collegiate community a completely new vibe, then developed a streamlined process with their Communications team to cut hours and cost as each issue hit the press.


faster production time


of budgeted hours used


less revision rounds

Their Communications team encouraged us to experiment with new design trends during our first few releases of SPARK. (You don’t need to ask us twice.)

As each edition comes to life, we truly love featuring different aesthetics and layout techniques, all while staying within the established Collegiate brand.
