Our Studio

Glyphix is an award-winning student-staffed design studio within the School of Visual Communication Design, located in Downtown Kent, Ohio.

Glyphix provides a professional atmosphere, where exceptional student designers develop creative solutions for real-world design projects.

In addition to obtaining course credits toward graduation, participation in the studio provides students with valuable experience in teamwork, professional business practices and client and vendor interaction. Student participation in the studio is based upon approval in a highly selective process consisting of a portfolio review, faculty approval and outside recommendations.

If you’re a small business or non-profit in need of design solutions, or if you're a design student who is interested in joining our team, please feel free to reach out to the studio! We operate during the academic year (September through early May). Design services are fee-based and prices are quoted based upon individual job requirements. Please call Creative Director, Assistant Professor Larrie King, to discuss your design needs at 330.672.7324.
