Jive Hotel is a 20’s inspired, jazz music themed hotel. I wanted the branding to evoke a classy, old-fashioned feel without being dated, and to exude energy and fun.

The Puzzle

After attending a “Celebration of Life” for a student who passed away at the age of 20, and listening to people say things about the young man that he would never have a chance to hear, I started looking for ways to tell the people in my life the heartfelt sentiments I too often reserve until it’s too late.

Buildings of PLNU

The Puzzle

The first time I set foot on PLNU’s campus I fell in love with the beauty of it. Not just the ocean, the sunset, and the perfect weather, but also the uniqueness of the architecture. Each building has a personality of its own. It made the campus feel like more than an educational institution. To me, it made it feel like home. Throughout my years here, I formed connections and loyalties to buildings, and I know many other students feel the same. They represented the relationships we formed within them. Students can buy paraphernalia at the bookstore to show their love for the school, but I wanted to give them a way to also show their love for their dorm, their major’s home base, where they took their favorite class, and where they met their best friend.
