COLUMBIA, SC – Quackenbush Architects + Planners is pleased to welcome Brandon Brazell to the firm as a Marketing Graphic Designer.

 

Brazell graduated in May 2016 from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor’s degree in Studio Art with a focus on Graphic Design. During his time at the university, he worked as a student designer in the Creative Services department, where he designed and illustrated business advertising and campaigns for The Daily Gamecock newspaper and the studentGarnet and Black magazine, as well as for other non-USC organizations and businesses.

 

Over the past year Brazell’s designs have been recognized by several professional organizations. In early 2016 the College Media Business & Advertising Managers named him with “Designer of the Year” for his collective work during the 2015-2016 academic year on The Daily Gamecock. The national membership organization, which represents over 125 colleges and universities nationwide, provides leadership development and emphasis on high industry standards in the field of college media and advertising.

 

Brazell and the Creative Services team also won a prestigious “Best Poster Series” award from 2016 American Advertising Federation of the Midlands. The series included posters featuring designs of some of the most prominent of University of South Carolina campus landmarks, including the Horseshoe and the Capstone Building.

 

“Our goal was to create posters that represented each location individually while retaining cohesive design elements,” says Brazell. “The design allows clients to advertise their businesses.” He’s particularly proud of his senior year project, a design that featured a Columbia Olympic Games logo, which imagined the 2016 Games as being held in Columbia. The logo included icons representing the Broad River, the manufacturing and technology industries, as well as the historical aspects of the railroad system and textile industries.

 

“I wanted to keep the style fun and bright, with plenty of movement and depth, while using flat colors and simple shapes and patterns,” he says.

 

In his new position at Q+, Brazell will provide client and staff support, an opportunity he feels will help him develop professionally as a graphic designer. “I’m excited to be a part of the Q+ team. The firm has a proud history in helping shape Columbia and the region,” he says. “I’m also interested in seeing how graphic designers collaborate with architects on the various projects.”

 

“Brandon’s responsiveness and enthusiasm will help support our team as we continue to serve our clients and community,” President Doug Quackenbush says. “We’re excited to have him join the team.”
