Amherst College Benefactor Acknowledgment

Photography, concept development, graphic design, copywriting

Amherst College is one of the premier liberal arts colleges in the United States, with a student population of over 1800, a dramatic 1000-acre campus, and a spectacular collection of classroom buildings, dormitories and other school facilities whose architecture ranges from the historic to the futuristic.

When the last of eleven new and updated buildings—whose recent construction and/or renovation had been made possible by the donations of wealthy benefactors—was finally complete and fully operational, we were asked to photograph each structure and, showcasing the results, design a limited edition commemorative portfolio to be presented to each benefactor as an expression of gratitude from the institution.
