    Ben Kieffer (GRC, '14) redesigned Kennedy Library's signage system for his senior project. Take a super fast tour with Ben through the library as he shows off his work! Ben drew inspiration from Pentagram’s system for New York City and for each floor used a color palette developed by Shepley Bulfinch as part of Kennedy Library's master planning process. Library services and zones are highlighted by bold, colorful banners throughout the building, so that users know where they are. Ben also designed icons to simplify the directory, and make it easy to spot computer labs, checkout, study spaces, and much more.

        Kennedy Library’s “Objects of Affection” is brought to life through a behind-the-scenes stop-motion peak into the illustrations that are found throughout the exhibit. The concept for the exhibit’s aesthetic was devised by student Ragini Sahai (Art & Design, 2014) collaboration with fellow students Audrey Anne Magwili (GrC, 2014) Ben Kieffer (GrC, 2014), Lauren Miller (Art & Design, 2015) Matt Rice (GrC, 2014) and Emily Wang (Art & Design, 2016). The “Objects of Affection” exhibit draws upon the personal papers of families featured in the Re/Collecting Project, an online archive and ethnic studies memory project of California’s Central Coast directed by Grace Yeh, associate professor of ethnic studies. The exhibit is featured on the 2nd floor of Kennedy Library and runs, May 12, 2013 – June 6th, 2014.
