Location: Ohio

Use: Train networks for Business + Freight systems

Concept: Efficiency

Techniques: Cost Effective Movement

Team Members: Elaine Shroyer

This studio project investigated how train networks could benefit the economic sectors of Ohio. Elaine and I were in charge of looking into major businesses and freight network in the region. This was an interesting investigation purely from looking at what top American companies operated in Ohio and region. With 36% of the Fortune 500 companies located in the area, trains could help move people around efficiently compared to planes or automobiles because travelers would have more convenience and the ability to multitask.

The more fascinating part of this project came from the freight networks in Ohio. We found out that freight is a very cost effective way to move goods and something that is expanding in the state today. What our proposal included was bridging the gap in the freight network by expanded it into the southeast region of the state that seemed to be the missing link.

In addition to the research, the goal was to have a well composed graphic style. We chose the more modern serif typeface, Rockwell, integrated it into a pallet of red and blue that complimented our research well. For only a week and a half, this was a successful project.
