John Carroll University

A private university educating leadership and service in the Jesuit tradition.


The Challenge

John Carroll University had a newly promoted creative services director, a vacant in-house graphic design position and an outdated suite of marketing materials that didn’t speak to the current generation of students.

The Solution

Kiwi Creative, a Cleveland graphic design studio, stepped in to update John Carroll University, which needed recruitment materials to appeal to high school students applying for college. We put a modern twist on the Jesuit university’s brand by using contemporary typography, unique photo filters and quirky design elements.

We’ve also created memorable pieces for several other internal departments, including posters for Student Activities, mailers for Fundraising, newsletters for the Career Center and more.

The Outcome

John Carroll has seen a steep rise in the number and quality of its applicants. Not only are they breaking enrollment records, but the average GPA of the incoming freshman class has increased, too.
