About the Space
The Noel Studio space is designed to help you think critically and creatively about your communication projects.
What can I do at the Noel Studio?
- Work alone, in small groups, or with a highly trained consultant to brainstorm, draft, or refine communication projects in an interactive, high-energy environment.
- Adjust multiple high-tech and low-tech spaces to accommodate diverse learning styles, communication projects, and collaborative groups.
- Move furniture to create your own ideal environments for designing effective communication.
