Higher Education and Athletics

Today, college students are not just looking for a quality education but the beginning of a lifelong journey toward professional success.  They are fully aware that a degree from one school may be held in higher esteem by future employers than another.  And that the network you form during your undergraduate years can serve you for decades to come in the business world.

In such a competitive market, educational leaders must invest in strategies to communicate the mission, vision, and value of their institutions.  Creating spaces and environments that portray the career enhancing “experience” a school provides, is an excellent way to market its unique qualities to students, families, faculty, alumni and other visitors.  In turn, these strategies can play a critical role in recruiting and retaining the best faculty, gifted students, and donors willing to support research and scholarship funds.

As CEO and President of Xibitz, James and Xibitz worked with some of the most prestigious designers in the design community.  Together they introduced and executed a new level of excellence in a wide range of designs for colleges and athletic facilities.  As a result, during his tenure, Xibitz developed some of the most innovative and creative exhibit and environmental branding projects seen in the higher education and athletics markets.  Below are some examples:
