SHOW and TELL

Founded in 1931, USC’s Doheny Memorial Library is both historic and totally current, now renovated and retrofitted to accommodate today’s technological needs. To promote its grand re-opening, we spotlighted the dichotomy between tradition and technology-using tech-heavy elements against a backdrop of arresting photos of the library’s classical architecture. The design concept was so well received, it was soon applied to a full-fledged capital campaign. Note cards, postcards, bookmarks, posters and more were sold at the campus bookstore to help preserve unique resource.
