University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering (MechSE)

Helping to Make a Better World.

Engineering students performing surgery on fruit fly embryos. Combustion researchers from Illinois and Italy working together to develop low-polluting biofuels. Nanoscientists and industry experts collaborate on next-generation data storage devices. These are examples of the innovative and high-stakes research and learning projects ongoing at MechSE.

Working with the dean and admissions staff, we helped communicate the program’s positioning and importance to prospective students, alumni, donors, peer schools, and the public. Through a balance of clean, organized typography and colorful illustration we visually expressed how MechSE combines mechanical engineering with theoretical and applied mechanics to attack problems of global significance.
