Humber College is a leading postsecondary institution that is made up of three campuses, serving over 29,000 full-time students. At their North campus in Etobicoke the College was looking to recognize donors in a sophisticated and engaging way. Entro's recognition program showcases the important support of donors, and expresses the College’s appreciation for this support.
A series of seamlessly integrated touch screens introduces an interactive component that provides more in-depth information about individual donors, funds raised, and project initiatives. The style and format of the program allows for expansion, while recognizing donor support in a unique and dignified manner.
Taking inspiration from the Humber River and the green spaces that are part of Humber’s campuses, the wall is comprised of a series of individual hexagon tiles with the four donor levels identified through the use of varying materials.
As the light interacts with the different surfaces, the tiles shimmer creating an effect similar to light reflecting off a river’s surface. The design concept is meant to convey the positive influence and impact that donors can have on students in the same way that stones shape the current of the river – each donor’s contribution adding to the mosaic of interactions between the community, College, and students.
