Our Studio

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

Glyphix Studio is a classroom program that allows students within the School of Visual Communication Design the opportunity to engage in thoughtful client-based and self-guided investigation into design problems. For over forty years, Glyphix Studio has paired some of the best and brightest from Kent State University with local clients in the goal of helping to innovate the city of Kent Ohio and beyond. Each member of our studio participates in an authentic and collaborative experience that is tailored to the respective ambitions of their creative careers. We utilize research, exploration, and a diverse set of visual design skills to solve problems. 

With over 80 awards and more than 400 program alumni, Glyphix Studio has made its mark as a holistically unique space to create, inspire and excel. 


Though Glyphix Studio is a classroom experience, we also work closely with IdeaBase, a multi-disciplinary creative agency offering comprehensive integrated marketing services such as branding, user experience design, web development, identity design and more. IdeaBase can partner its services with university resources like an experienced teleproductions unit, a usability computer testing lab and a focus group suite.
