Transforming Learning Spaces: A Case Study on Anderson University
In the competitive world of collegiate athletics, creating a dynamic and visually appealing environment is essential to motivate athletes and engage fans. Anderson University sought to enhance its brand-new athletics facility and men’s lacrosse locker room. In this case study, we will dive into how Smash Ink’s signage and graphics solutions transformed these spaces into a true reflection of Anderson University’s athletic pride.
Anderson University faced the challenge of infusing its brand identity and school spirit into its state-of-the-art athletics facility and men’s lacrosse locker room.

Smash Ink took on this challenge with a comprehensive signage and graphics strategy that spanned multiple areas of the athletics facility, including the Entry Hall, VIP Lounge, Locker Room Entries, and the Men’s Lacrosse Locker Room.
