Design

There's intention

As is only fitting for our context at Thomas Jefferson's University, design is critical to the mission of OpenGrounds. From the "palette"-name, space, color, mark — to the "platform"-tables, walls and grid — each element has been carefully crafted to support boundary-crossing, culture-changing "practice." While some elements pay respect to the institution's founder by drawing upon Jefferson's designs and intentions, others experiment with 21st century opportunities.
