Introducing the library of the future

North Carolina State University
Raleigh, NC

We worked with NC State University to develop communication and signage programs for the new James B. Hunt Jr. Library. The building, designed by the architecture firms Snøhetta and Clark Nexsen, is a remarkable structure that completely reimagines the role of a library within both the academy and the community. It opened in early 2013 to international acclaim.

The Hunt Library was envisioned to be a multidisciplinary, technologically advanced “machine for learning.” It serves as a laboratory for the exploration of new technologies, practices, and theories of collaboration.

Our work included the development of fundraising materials along with the design of commemorative publications, a visitors’ guide, interior textile patterns, and the building’s donor signage program.
