Redesign the interior of the largest and oldest dining hall at UNT. Since most of the students eating here are new to the college and town, we needed to create a place that encouraged them to come and stay.
Create an experience that encourages new students to explore and enjoy the vibrance and culture of Denton, TX. We covered the walls with lots of information and photos so that students eating alone would have lots to look at and read while also feeling welcomed and excited about their new home for the next 4+ years.
Created original concept, researched history and found historical photos, mocked up and designed wall graphics which were then sent to a printer and installed. Another designer and I created all of the graphics.
Mocked up in photoshop. Designed in photoshop and illustrator.
The first vegan dining hall in the US. We wanted it to feel fresh, vibrant, and inviting for vegans and carnivores alike. We used bright colors, hand lettering, and fruit/veggie textures throughout the cafe. The University of North Texas gained national recognition through MSNBC, PETA, Amy's Kitchen, and many other vegan blogs and was voted the most vegan-friendly campus in the US.
Bruce Hall, UNTs oldest dining hall had recently been remodeled. As part of UNTs efforts to reduce food waste in dining halls, we created murals with quotes from environmental philosophers and and illustrations reflecting the 1920's art deco style of the dining hall.
Hand painted doors at the entrance to Bruce Hall explaining dining hall rules and hours.
