Branding and marketing designs for Oglethorpe University’s Atlanta Laboratory for Learning (A_LAB) were honored with two awards in the 2015 University and College Design Competition.
The overall A_LAB brand identity program won a Gold Award, one of the top honors in only seven categories. The A_LAB admission brochure, distributed to prospective students, was individually recognized with an Award for Excellence in the recruitment category.
The A_LAB, located in the Turner Lynch Campus Center, helps Oglethorpe students to put their classroom learning into action through hands-on experiences in study abroad, civic engagement, internships, and research. Spearheaded by Oglethorpe’s University Communications and em2, an Atlanta-based education marketing firm, the A_LAB branding process was an effort that included staff, students, and faculty.
