Foppe Visual Communication completed the finishing touches to the Mascoutah School District 19's new $2 million Administrative Support Center. "It's going to be more than just district offices," stated Dr. Craig Fiegel, Mascoutah School District's Superintendent, referring to the much needed offices for district administrative personnel, 150-person capacity room for school board meetings, conference rooms and storage space. Previously, Foppe Visual had worked closely with the Mascoutah School District to create a comprehensive Brand Identity that would encompass the growing family of Mascoutah Schools including all-new logos, mascot art, brand colors, signage and more. Thus, Foppe Visual was called in again to do what we do best; consult, create, and complete a Professional Branded Environment that would not only appear professional, but evoke the Mascoutah School Spirit and remain authentic with regard to the client's established brand identity as well.
Foppe Visual focused heavily upon Mascoutah's Core Values and mission to draw inspiration for a suite of designs that would punctuate various facets of the School Districts philosophy. When one arrives at 421 Harnett, there's no mistake; you're in "Indian Territory". A monument style on premise sign and pole banners lead the way to a facility that is punctuated by bold dimensional building letters and a 3D Logo. Throughout the interior, visitors and employees alike are greeted by custom architectural signage and commercial graphics that is not only informative, but true to the Mascoutah brand.
The Jon Davis Center, built in 2009 to continue the legacy left by Jon Davis, serves as a training facility for wrestlers from Edwardsville, from the State of Illinois, and from across the nation. An affiliate of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), The Jon Davis Wrestling Center seeks to not only strengthen the physical and competitive prowess of the youth who train under it's roof, but to also foster a spiritual enrichment as well. As such, stakeholders of The Jon Davis Center sought the guidance of a campus branding firm that could capture all facets of this philosophy and integrate it into their new brand identity.
Foppe Visual spent a great deal of time and effort collaborating with the Jon Davis Center to create a unique look and feel for the facility. After a period of close consultation, a brilliant and visually stunning design solution was agreed upon. Each design that was included in Foppe Visual's design proposal was designed with the installation in mind, and as a result Foppe Visual would also be instrumental in the implementation.
The high contrast Black and Orange motif instantly demands ones attention as they enter the facility, as the wrestling center's fierce mascot captures the competitive spirit of the wrestlers who compete within. Throughout the Jon Davis center, this theme is echoed in the abundant collection of installations such as vinyl graphics, custom paintwork, dedication areas, wayfinding signage and more. Competitor and parent alike can take pride in their athletic achievements as the philosophy of the FCA that Jon Davis firmly believed in resonates throughout the facility.
