Global Prairie was engaged to re-imagine the space within Ohio University’s Convocation Center to house the Courtside Cats, their Premium Suite, as well as space for athlete recruitment and sports administration meetings. Through this project, we showcased our abilities to go beyond the applied graphic task and into interior design and architecture. 

Using workshops and site assessments to understand the multipurpose nature of the space, we were able to identify key audiences to make the space as functional as possible. Working with insights from our facilities assessment and subsequent facilities toolkit, we produced concepts that were on brand and within the needs of the space.

Working in coordination with University Design & Construction, Global Prairie built out engineered drawings for construction bids and implementation. We also produced 3D models of the space for sneak peek purposes with prospective season ticket holders.

In addition to our design and 3D models, we concepted custom carpentry and furniture, as well as custom lighting and experiential graphics. This is one of many initiatives we have executed to elevate a storied brand, engage Bobcat fans, and support their incredible Athletic Department.
