Brainstorming Process

The job was to create and identity for a new space on Georgia Tech's campus. This space aimed to be a comfortable and causal space for students to study, as well as attend programs that inspired out of the classroom learning. The space was named "The Resource Room" before I was hired, I changed the name to the "Clough Lounge" because it is located in a building called the Clough Commons and I thought the idea of a lounge was just what they were looking for.
