Ohio Dominican

Environments / Brandscaping™

Ohio Dominican University is a private Catholic liberal arts university, guided in its educational mission by the Dominican motto, taken from the writings of St. Thomas Aquinas, "Contemplare et contemplata aliis tradere," which means, "To contemplate truth and to share with others the fruits of this contemplation." The Dominican tradition of spirituality is rooted in common life at the university: liturgical prayer and meditation, study, and ministry of the Word. These values guide the steps of the majority of faculty, students, or staff at Ohio Dominican University.

Partnering with the Office of Student Life, Aurora’s projects with ODU include:

  • Ohio Dominican Athletics Hall of Fame
    • Transformed an unused hallway, even relocating a water fountain, but keeping the ceramic tiles as a backdrop!
    • This temporary Hall of Fame is used to encourage the Black and Gold booster club to build a more permanent structure in the future.
  • Brandscaping™ in the Alumni Hall Gymnasium, Panther Plaza, the Library and Erskine Hall, featuring the ODU panther and large images of student life.
    • Originally framed photographs, Aurora was able to save ODU significant cost by direct-printing George Anderson photographs on ½ black Sintra substrate.
  • Annual switch out of the Avenue banners on Sunbury Road and throughout campus.
  • ODU’s Commencement and Convocation stage set.
