Marquis Studios is a unique program that brings the vibrancy of New York City’s artist community into New York City’s public schools – offering essential educational opportunities that not only expose students to the arts but also provide them with socio-emotional support. The new typographic mark is bold and celebrates the beauty in something hand-made; it serves as a window in which to feature the work of the students. The logo is paired with cut paper shapes, a new vibrant palette, and focus on a more fluid layout system. The organic illustration style exemplifies the organization’s dedication to inclusivity.
Typography and Color
The site design process began with a content restructuring, with a shift that put a greater spotlight on Marquis Studios’ impact and approach. The site incorporates student work, illustration, and brand elements to create a visual style that feels collaborative, artistic, and student-focused, without leaning too strongly on just a single area of the arts. The site was rebuilt on a new platform, Webflow, to allow the internal team at Marquis Studio greater editing freedom.
