Wall-to-Wall Studios Designs Recruitment Collateral for Waynesburg University

October 28, 2013




Wall-to-Wall Studios was hired by Waynesburg University, a private, comprehensive Christian institution in Southwestern PA, to redesign its suite of recruitment collateral to develop compelling communication devices that would better speak to Waynesburg’s unique target audience. While demonstrating the modern and innovative nature of a Waynesburg education, the marketing collateral also needed to convey the University’s commitment to tradition and faith. By utilizing fresh photography, candid student-life imagery and messaging engineered to resonate with high school seniors seeking faith-based higher education, the updated recruitment pieces elevate the Waynesburg University value proposition to prospective students. The collaboration included the design and development of the viewbook, junior viewbook, travel and search pieces.

Wall-to-Wall Studios Designs Integrated Marketing & Branding Campaign for Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts

September 24, 2013




Wall-to-Wall Studios designed the integrated branding & marketing campaign for the 2013 Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts, produced by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, the transformative force behind quality performing and visual arts in the region. The design effort by W|W included: logo, motion graphic animations, advertising, website design, microsite design & development, print collateral, merchandising, duck promotional campaign and more.


The Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts offers an eclectic mix of theater, dance, music and visual arts handpicked from around the world. The Festival’s artists, in some way, redefine what is meant by “contemporary” in today’s culture, creating a unique platform to explore that question and engage Pittsburgh audiences in an active dialogue. This is a rare opportunity to experience performance and visual arts that will ignite a range of reactions and emotions. 



Everyone remembers their first.



To launch the 2013 Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts a 40-foot rubber duck will float down the Allegheny River. The rubber duck has been spreading joy around the world while on display in Amsterdam, Belgium, Osaka, Sydney, Sao Paulo and Hong Kong, and arrives in the U.S. to conquer hearts for the first time at the Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts.

Wall-to-Wall Studios Designs Integrated Marketing Campaign for Bike Pittsburgh

August 28, 2013


Wall-to-Wall Studios created, Drive With Care, an integrated marketing campaign for Bike Pittsburghthe non-profit advocacy organization that is transforming the streets and communities into vibrant, healthy places by making them safe and accessible for everyone to bike and walk. This advocacy campaign is a testament to the organization's success and impact since its founding in 2002, such that Pittsburgh has matured into a top cycling city in America and number of bicyclists on the streets has grown exponentially. By utilizing real people (that are also avid cyclists), the campaign helps humanize bicyclists. This integrated campaign is a continuation of the creative collaboration that began with W|W designing Bike Pgh's formative branding (logo, identity system) and the iconic Three Rivers Bike Racks seen throughout Pittsburgh. Check out the story and video as reported by Andy Sheehan of KDKA news.

Wall-to-Wall Studios Designs LaunchPGH.com for the URA

August 5, 2013

Wall-to-Wall Studios created the name, identity & branding and designed & developed the website for www.LaunchPGH.com, an interactive environment designed to connect entrepreneurs with opportunities and serve as a “launchpad” for local and new businesses. The site, commissioned by the URA (Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh), is a "one-stop shop" for entrepreneurs, investors, developers and job seekers with links to the best business and networking resources that can help them get their business off the ground, events for entrepreneurs and information about venture capitalists who might be interested in investing in their company.


The LaunchPGH website was developed using the WordPress custom content management system, and integrated the use of Responsive Design to optimize the user experience for desktop/laptop, mobile devices and iPad/tablet. The Responsive Design website approach responds to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation by using a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As the user switches from their laptop to iPad, the website automatically switches to accommodate for resolution, image size and scripting abilities. Read media coverage of the LaunchPGH.com story in Mayor Luke Ravenstahl's press release, Pittsburgh-Post Gazette article, POP City article or the Pittsburgh Business Times article.

Breadshop Identity by Wall-to-Wall Studios wins Brand New Award

March 29, 2013


Congratulations to our client Breadshop, whose corporate identity system won a spot in this year's Brand New Awards. 714 entries were submitted and 75 winners were announced last week. Here's what the organizers themselves had to say about it:


"Just when you think judges can’t get any tougher, they do. And this crop of judges proved especially hard to please. Unimpressed by recycling of styles or great visuals that didn’t match the client, they all looked for something unexpected, surprising, and/or meaningful. Perhaps when we asked the judges to be tough we didn’t expect them to select the lowest amount of entries yet in our three-year run, despite there being almost 200 entries more than the first year when the judges at the time selected 90 entries. But one rule we have is that there is no minimum quota of projects we need to include. Whatever bubbles to the top makes it. Simple as that."


We're proud of our collaboration with Breadshop founder Christopher Sy, and apparently lots of other folks in Hawaii are fond of his work too.
