Preparing Emerging Scholars
In 2018, Duke University introduced the Summer Doctoral Academy, a two-week program of short courses designed to introduce doctoral students to skills, tools and knowledge that augment their regular coursework and help them prepare for dissertation research, innovative teaching, leadership, and/or public engagement.
In preparation for its second year, Kompleks Creative was onboarded to establish a brand that can be applied to program materials. Starting with the logo design, we developed concepts that were contemporary and progessive. The zigzag pattern at the top of the shield represents the mountain that students climb to achieve peak performance in education. The open book at the bottom represents their desire to access further knowledge.
Following its completion, we designed a flyer, Microsoft PowerPoint presentation template and certificate.
