Ayers Saint Gross released its first Comparing Campuses poster at the 1998 Society for College and University Planning (SCUP) Conference in Vancouver, BC. It featured black and white figure-ground drawings of 11 campuses at the same scale, including the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Carnegie Mellon University. Every year, Ayers Saint Gross designs a new poster. Graphic depictions illustrate data and trends in higher education in a visually compelling and concise way. Posters are printed locally using 100% post-consumer recycled paper with quick drying UV inks.
