Single mom goes back to school.

“Whatever your schedule is, Weber State prepares a way to work around it.”

Sandi came back to school after an 11year break, she thought she was too old to return but she soon found out that was not the case. After she returned she realized there is so much to learn outside of your degree program.

Sandi was just selected to be a part of the Diversity Board as the new community chair. She will be working with resources in the community to help educate students in different cultures and lifestyles. Right now she is building a relationship between Weber State and a nonprofit group called Holding Out Help, a polygamy rescue group.  She is hoping Weber State can become a major resource for those that are hoping to start a new life outside of polygamy.

“My favorite thing about Weber State is how many programs they have available to the students”

She loves that the students are part of what makes Weber so great. The students are not just paying tuition and sitting in on a lecture they are actually part of the student body.

New Superheroes at the Layton Hills Mall

Recently, our team unveiled an extensive, new series of advertisements at the Layton Hills mall that we are quite excited about. There are five main entrances at the mall (not including those that lead into specific stores) and each one now has three door clings, for a total of 15 completely unique pieces of design. Check them out below:

Our goal with this new project was to reach out to the community and communicate our message to as many people as possible. If you aren’t quite sure what “Be Your Own Superhero” means, read this blog post I wrote back in March. The mall entrances seemed like a great opportunity for us—we should get a lot of exposure, especially from back-to-school shoppers who may already have their minds on school.

Our design process here was a bit more involved and substantial than anything we’ve done in the past. For one thing, we commissioned a lengthy photo shoot, starring plenty of nontraditional students to play our new superheroes. As always, photo shoots require a new wardrobe and a professional photographer (thanks to Zac Williams). Once we received our photos, we combed through them for the best of the best, and plugged those into our door cling designs. Since the design elements (logo, color, messaging) already existed from prior marketing materials, these came together fairly quickly, but it was still important to include just the right amount of information. In the end, they were printed and installed beautifully by Fusion Imaging and we couldn’t be happier.
