The History of Graphic Design Production and her involvement with the Peoples Graphic Design Archive
Drew Bryant, Associate VP of Design Studio at Advent was the lead on the design team for the project and Nina Hammoudeh, was the project manager with UT Austin's Project Management and Construction Services. They will both be able to offer great insight and background on the project.
Commemorating a storied tradition while highlighting current student-athletes across the 20-sport athletics program, The Frank Denius Family University of Texas Athletics Hall of Fame celebrated its grand opening in August, 2019.
It is The University's first-ever sports Hall of Fame, a $17.1 million project housed in the 27,713-square-foot Red McCombs Red Zone in the north end zone of Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. The Hall of Fame sets the standard for all associated with the Longhorns — coaches, student-athletes, administrators, donors and more. It collects history from all corners of campus into one location in a space that seamlessly blends digital experiences, updatable static displays and other storytelling elements, creating one home for the Longhorns’ past, present and future.
