When I returned to my summer teaching job in 2009 I had the pleasure of working with Grayson Cooper, a University of North Carolina student who is starting a charter school in Charlotte, NC. Mosaic Charter School will be taking a radical approach to education, which will break down the barriers that are preventing gifted students from reaching their full potential.
The identity for Mosaic Charter School was my thesis, which I worked on during the 2009/2010 school years. In Mosaic Charter's mission statement they say: “…we will blur the boundary between school and home, between school and community, and ultimately between school and the world.” In my mind, a Venn diagram visually represented this concept, which is what the Mosaic Charter School logo is based on.
I took the logo and translated it into a visual culture for the school, consisting of all their branding and print design.
