The Webster Parish Convention and 访问or’s Commission (CVC) is partnering with Louisiana 科技 University’s School of 设计 to brand Miller Quarters Park, a beautiful 11-acre community nature spot in Minden fit for festivals, 家庭, and fun for all groups.
科技 students enrolled in the Fall quarter Identity Systems 设计 class are getting a hands-on opportunity to create the visual identity for the park. These future designers are working closely with the Tourism Commission to create a mark that both embraces the important historic significance of the property and illustrates the promising future of Miller Quarters Park to serve as a bridge in the community.
“We are excited to again partner with Louisiana 科技 University and let the students set the stage for the look and feel for Miller Quarters Park,” Ty Pendergrass, CVC的椅子, 说. “This is the second phase of our partnership with Louisiana 科技. We are excited to work hand in hand to develop an identity system that will stay true to the history of Miller Quarters, while building a bridge for the future.”
The Webster Parish project includes an identity system for the park that will consist of a primary mark system, signage/wayfinding elements, a web interface, 和更多的.
“The Louisiana 科技 School of 设计 is thrilled to collaborate with the Webster Parish CVC to create a new identity system for Miller Quarters Park,” 科技’s Tom Futrell, Department Chair, Graphic 设计, 说. “Our team of graphic design students is passionate about connecting the community to the park and making it a special experience for all visitors.”
“The elements we hope to develop at Miller Quarters are a reflection of our community’s culture and lifestyle,” Serena Gray, executive director of Webster Parish CVC, 说, “and I believe that the Louisiana 科技 design students will help us, through storytelling and unique design, tie together where we’ve been and where we’re going as an attractive destination to locals and visitors alike.”
