Thesis Statement

Thesis Title

The human connection to a place may be attributed to design, which acts as a representation of human experiences. By looking at multiple graphic identities of locations and environmental experience graphics I will see how design can contribute to a city’s evolution. The sustainable growth of a city can also develop through focusing on and benefiting the residents of the city. With this in mind, I intend to create a visual identity system for the city of Lincoln, Nebraska that focuses on nurturing city-citizen interactions.


Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.

It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
