The icon for the icon

Classic as it is iconic, Grand Central broke the mold and brought luxury student living to the middle of the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. For the logo, capturing that promise of both unique beauty and unrivaled location was the goal. And with all points leading to and from Grand Central, the direction of the design was clear.

Resident appreciation programs

Little things build a brand

Customer appreciation, or in this case, resident appreciation. It’s not lip service from LZ Management. In working with the LZ team, together we have developed apparel giveaways, events and welcome packages for residents throughout their properties. It’s the extra effort that stands them apart from their competition and says that here a resident is more than a unit number.

Event planning & branding

When it comes to college students, free food and music are a natural fit. Add free bowling and rock climbing at one of the more popular student venues on campus and you get Eats and Beats. A festive event we developed with LZ Management specifically to welcome residents of Grand Central and X01. From naming and logo design to event planning and development of promotional materials, we helped LZ usher in not only a fall semester tradition but set the tone for the creation of other events to follow. Events that bolster the Grand Central and X01 brands while becoming brands themselves.
