Backall projects

Tacoma Public Schools, like our city itself, has been undergoing a renaissance, reversing decades of decline and earning a reputation for innovation. We’ve been honored to partner with the district to help visualize their ethos of innovation.



Our collection of projects for TPS is almost as diverse as the student population the district serves. We’ve worked small (icons for an app). We’ve worked big (basketball court graphics). We’ve supported new schools and programs with logos (Whittier Wainwright and Thrive). We’ve worked digital (a custom website for administrators designed to demystify the steps involved in leading their school through new construction). And we’ve brought bright ideas to life in physical spaces, creating everything from environmental graphics, to signage and wayfinding.

As Tacomans, it’s fun to see our work “out there” where people will encounter it, but it’s truly inspiring to see teachers and administrators live the work of caring for students and innovating education every day.

Now that you've seen what we can do, let's schedule a time to hang out.
