AFH GRAPHIC
DESIGN STUDIO
COLLABORATES
WITH BARNES
& NOBLE​

Graphic Design designs apparel for Barnes & Noble College Bookstores for 5 years.​

Barnes & Noble hired AFH’s Graphic Design studio to design a product line that spoke specifically to Boston University’s students, constituents, and the public in general. The final outcome was a bright and youthful line of t-shirts, tote bags, and other accessories, inspired by their mascot and built environment.​

BOSTON UNIVERSITY​

The Club C design was inspired by the theme of William The Conqueror’s coat of arms. The red from the shield itself, the yellow from the two lions and blue from the claws were all incorporated into the shoe’s design. The 1066 on the heel of both shoes represents the year the Battle of Hastings started, fought between Duke William I of Normandy and Anglo-Saxon King Harold Godwinson, which launched the Norman conquest of England. Lastly, the Tudor Rose was hand painted using watercolor mimicking the style of English bone china.
