is a design studio in the Visual Communication Program at Northern Arizona University that produces work for clients in the NAU and the Flagstaff Community.

Our goal is to provide the students with an experiential learning environment where they can apply the theory learned in the classroom and experience real projects with deadlines and limitations.

Students gain from applied experiences and clients benefit from the high quality of work produced by the best students in the program, with faculty as facilitators providing structure and assuring the quality of the work delivered.

We work to bring ideas into a reality and help businesses shine.
