Arcturis received an AIGA Merit Award for our approach to the environmental graphics for Washington University’s Investment Management Company in St. Louis. Arcturis was engaged to design and brand the new space. To create a sophisticated brand experience, we utilized modern graphic elements, high-end materials, and subtle signage to distinguish the Investment Management Company as a distinct entity while staying true to the broader brand identity of Washington University.
After celebrating LGBTQIA Pride Month we wanted to highlight some of the incredibly impactful artists in the LGBTQIA community.
This LGBTQIA Rights History infographic was illustrated by our graphics intern, Kevin Schneider, to see more of Kevin's work, check out his website, kevinmschneider.com.
Arcturis welcomes the newest member of the graphics team, James Butler.
James Butler is a graphic designer by trade, but has also worked as a fabricator. He has worked on projects that range from branding and print design, to custom signage design and many things in between. His experience in building and fabricating provide him with a unique perspective of design. He has a passion for design in the physical realm, and loves seeing projects take on a finished, dimensional form. Born and raised close to St. Louis, he is excited to work on projects that help the city continue to develop and grow.
The Murmuration Festival gathered thought-leaders in the areas of art, science, music, and tech into the Cortex Innovation District for a weekend of engaging with the public and sharing work and inspiration. Arcturis has a close relationship with Cortex as several of our incubator projects fall within this up-and-coming tech development in St. Louis.
We knew that we wanted to be involved with this festival in some capacity and were thrilled when we were presented with an opportunity to not only donate our time, but our design expertise. Our graphics team was able to take a hands-on approach with the design and fabrication of the festival’s signage. We were able to design and then physically build the festival’s signage in the recently completed Tech Shop St. Louis.
It was refreshing to work on a project that required us to get out of the studio and away from the screen. This project was not only rewarding because we were able to give back to our community, but it was a rare and fulfilling opportunity to bring a design to life with our own hands.
