McCormick School of Engineering at Northwestern University

Whole-Brain Engineering™

Teaching students to think with both sides of their brain, to frame a problem correctly, solve it collaboratively, and communicate it effectively to have an impact with what they make and how they think. This is whole-brain engineering.

McCormick wanted a radical departure from its previous admissions communications. We helped McCormick communicate key messages clearly, concisely, and at the right pitch for prospective students. The text is warm and conversational based on what we heard students, faculty, alums, and others affiliated with the program say about it. Visuals are energetic but informative and consistently inconsistent to evoke the diversity of people and the range of opportunities for collaboration at McCormick and Northwestern.
