Working with actual clients provides students the opportunity to work on a creative project under the same circumstances and pressures industry professionals would face on a daily basis. Building relationships within the local community, the following work illustrates the success of such projects.

 

Art Center of Corpus Christi

In spring 2015 Texas A&M University–Corpus Christi students Jewel Benn, Jessica Broome, Megan Dzhumakeev, Sarah Gamez, Joe Garcia, Tina Lentz, Amber Mastrobattista, Ben Pedley, Julia Sheffield, Ryan Smith, Sierra Spencer, and Monica Viveros partnered with the Art Center of Corpus Christi to create a new identity emphasizing the important and unique role the center plays as part of the local community. The work below was presented to the client at the end of the a 16-week semester and is currently being implemented in various phases.

Texas A&M University–Corpus Christi University Galleries

In spring 2014, Texas A&M University–Corpus Christi students Bryce Bunting, Madelyn Calvert, Alyssa Garza, Asella Gonzalez, Katie Gordon, Allison Le, Thi Nguyen, Trang Phan, Erik Salas, and Sydney Sanders embarked on a project to design an identity for the Texas A&M University–Corpus Christi art galleries. Working as a team, named Second Floor Creative, the thumbnails below represent their solutions as part of an intense 16-week semester. In the spring of 2015, the group won a Gold ADDY from the American Advertising Federation of Corpus Christi; an award that sent the work to a five-state district competition.
