What is it?

Taking place over a 15-week semester, the objective of this student project was to create a localized campaign targeting college students on Pennsylvania State University campus. The bottle “Give U Life” by Yung Baby Tate was chosen to connect to students with the tagline “Open Your Mind”. This encourages students to be themselves and independent for the first time in their lives.

Key Visuals

In order to create a basis for the campaign, visuals were created with bright, vibrant colors to represent the energy and drive behind Yung Baby Tate’s music. Watered down paint was dripped onto a black background to create these glowing, fluid shapes. 


Several physical, promotional materials were created to showcase the campaign on campus.

Immersive Mural Experience

To expand engagement, an event was created to gather students, families, and alumni together to celebrate the campaign and LIFEWTR. An event space would be set up on Penn State campus on the HUB lawn, where students could participate to create a mural that would be displayed at the following home game.
