about the project
Channelview Crenshaw elementary, completed in 2015, is a 2 line cafeteria space serving 600 K-5th children. Our design team developed a graphic facelift for an aging facility that lacked imagination. Branded as “Launchpad” the serving area playfully integrated a space theme to complement the school mascot Crenshaw Comets.
Design components included faux metal wainscoting panels covering aging glazed block walls, eyebrow canopies over entry/exit doors, space capsule influenced identity signage and serving line clouds, resurfaced entry/exit doors and blastoff countdown numbers along the serving lines. Merchandising services were provided to complete the theme of the serving line.
