Purple People: HMR Designs Provided Decor for the Kellogg School of Management Reunion

Share Article

HMR Designs helped the Kellogg School of Management celebrate a milestone reunion.

HMR Designs was pleased to be a part of the Kellogg School of Management’s reunion by creating themed décor for the event.

The Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University welcomed approximately 600 alumni that represented 60 years of programming. The reunion ran from May 13 – 15 and was held in Chicago’s Field Museum.

Brittanie Ahrens, HMR Designs’ Corporate Event Designer, elevated the event with custom décor that incorporated the school’s purple color palette along with aqua and pistachio accents. Specialty-branded items were created for the reunion by the HMR Designs’ art and graphics team.

The effect of the design was immediately apparent at the group reception where class years were branded on internally lit columns for alumni to gather around before they progressed into smaller gatherings within the museum’s classroom spaces.

"It’s not every day you get to incorporate purple into your design, and Northwestern always makes it look so good," said Brittanie. "Kellogg alumni have such school spirit, and we love to help them embrace that."

The reunion and its custom-made décor was a huge success. For more information about HMR Designs, please visit hmrdesigns.com/event-planners/ and hmrdesigns.com/blog/.
