Unleash Your Potential UCF Mural

UCF Downtown Campus Mural "Unleash Your Potential"


Akyros was hired on as a sub-contractor under Memoir Agency. We had the pleasure of working with UCF's brand new campus in the heart of downtown Orlando. Forever in gratitude for those who helped make this happen, We'd like to give a special thank you to Cole NeSmith, Jamie Giller, Mike Kilbride, Danielle Moore, Chris Mock, Domenica Rohrborn, Renee King, & Heather Waroff

It was really cool to see a college building in the construction process. As a student it's not something you consider when walking through the classroom hallways. We started with an empty room & my brain became overwhelmed with possibility.  

 After many concepts & revisions there was a late night during the ideation process that sent me down a black hole of ideas & endless drawing. Our goal was to inspire one to "unleash their potential" so I tried to apply that mantra by aligning my illustrative style into the design.

 With a week timeline to complete the painting, I got to work.

Called in some backup from Renee King (@ren_kin), made a mess of my new work shoes, & checked out the bathroom mirror lighting.

 Freestyled the wall except for the lettering... used a projector for that to save time.

 Seeing students & staff working in the room made the space feel complete. I wish I had the opportunity to have a study room like this when I was a student!

 UCF is one of the largest schools in the nation so the coverage was incredible. I got to work with Nicole Dudenhoefer & Nick Leyva from UCF marketing & they wrote a great piece on the project. Check it out here!

So thankful. During my time as a UCF student, I was always asking about how we can transform the campus through murals & installations. So grateful to be  considered for the job when the opportunity arouse. UCF gave me so much more than a traditional education & I hope other students discover the many ways to Unleash Their Potential during their time there. GO KNIGHTS!
