Environmental wall proposal for the University of Houston Jack J. Valenti School of Communication. Compelling Exchange emphasizes the school’s information exchange of human experiences that inspires current and prospective students to create their own exchange and narrative within their field. Displayed through a miniature model and informational booklet, this proposal is defined by its concept, formal elements and estimated budget.

"We wanted to celebrate the Valenti School’s namesake, its students, and its mission to train the next generation of innovative storytellers. The Graphic Design students perfectly captured what we are trying to do here."
– Dr. Temple Northup, Director of Jack J. Valenti School of Communication

The original proposal goal aimed at designing the entry lobby walls of UH Jack J. Valenti School of Communication. The mock ups and proposal catalog showcase the different floor plan and layout using the entry lobby in mind. However, a committee from the Valenti School was excited to utilize the school building's Media Production hallway to display Compelling Exchange instead of the lobby. With a change in floor plan, we quickly adapted our environmental wall design to the new environment.
