Academy Center of the Arts

During the last semester of my senior year I interned at the Academy Center of the Arts in Lynchburg, VA. I worked under the Director of Operations for six months and learned about how to manage a large staff, work under pressure, and develop relationships with clients and donors.

The newly restored Historic Theatre is a large commercial rental venue as well as a production space that needed signage and maps of the building. Using Adobe Illustrator I created these maps from scratch. The layouts went on to be used for rental clients to explain the spaces as well as for fire safety.

Campus and Backstage Maps

Signs created for backstage are color coded by level. Each level had approximately 8 – 12 signs which were hung and framed in appropriate locations.
