Rice University Moody Center for the Arts

The Moody Center for the Arts at Rice University opened in 2017.  The Moody, designed by renowned architect Michael Maltzan, is a platform for presenting arts of all disciplines, as well as a flexible teaching space for new ways of learning and collaborating. 

The visual identity system takes inspiration from the building. It leverages the shape of the oculus as a device to frame and illuminate the everchanging experiences at play at the groundbreaking arts organization. 

Rice both reflects and supports the way students are learning and artists are working today — collaboratively and across disciplines.
