Commemorative and recognition displays are frequently part of our design solutions. As a subgroup of what we do, they are one of the most challenging types of displays to design. Our recent design for the Mariemont School Foundation is our latest creation and we’re excited to show it off.
The Foundation is an private group of parents, businesses and residents that sponsor a variety of school initiatives to maintain and improve Mariemont’s award-winning school district. We were asked to design and produce an outdoor display that not only provided recognition to past donors but also inspired new donors and donations.
Our solution utilizes colors and shapes that are germane to the distinctive hexagon-themed Mariemont High School architecture. Individual tiles are color-coded in the schools 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.
