Beyond the Border Senior Thesis

Beyond the Border Senior Thesis

Beyond the Border is a campaign, created in colaboration with Amber Cunningham, with the goal to encourage locals and tourists to travel beyond the Arkansas/Oklahoma border to historic areas. Fort Smith, AR and Oklahoma are closely connected because of history, but the perspective of historical figures or importance of sites varies greatly depending on which side of the border you are on. To get people excited, we created a booklet to act as a passport that visitors could get stamped at participating locations and earn a free t-shirt. My responsibilites included:  gathering websites and contact information for each historic site, the design and layout of the booklet, the design and development of a user friendly website.
