2Communiqué and RappArt

We’d like to recognize the design firm of 2Communiqué and creative director, Kelly McMurray for their dedication to illustration and the frequent use of our illustrators.  2Communiqué was recently commissioned by two of their clients, AACSB and the University of Tampa to redesign their publications, BizEd and UTjournal, respectively. BizEd is a publication for business school deans and faculty and is read along with the Harvard Business Review and The Wall Street Journal.  An integral part of the design direction was the use of commissioned illustration (vs stock images) to enhance the editorial content and make the visual message unique.  Smart, high impact, conceptual illustrations are the center piece of Kelly and her team’s strategy with BizEd and the UTjournal.

RappArt receives more than it’s fair share of 2Communiqué assignments.  The Fall issues for both publications featured Rapp talent. We are proud to be part of the repertoire of talented artists that 2Communique works with and hope that other designers similarly embrace the benefits of custom illustration.

Please review the work below.
