Student Design Agency: IdeaBase & Glyphix

 In today's communication landscape, real-world experience outside of the classroom is an essential part of our student's education. That's why CCI houses its own professional, student-powered design agency, giving students the opportunity to work with outside clients, develop their portfolios and collaborate with students from programs other than their own.


IdeaBase is a Kent State student-powered design agency located in Franklin Hall. IdeaBase bridges the gap between classroom and career by bringing together top-performing Kent State students to tackle real-world client problems. The team represents a variety of backgrounds, including visual communication design, public relations, advertising, computer information systems, emerging media and technology, marketing and communication studies students.
