Texas A&M University Reed Arena
Reed Arena—a 13,000 seat arena and home to the Texas A&M Aggie Basketball and Volleyball programs—underwent an interior renovation to infuse the spirit of Aggieland into its facility. Lacking a connection to the University’s athletic brand and unique fan culture, Jack Porter was tasked with bringing the white walls of the arena’s concourse to life.
The upper walls of the concourse are lined with dynamic murals highlighting game day excitement. At eye level, the concourse is defined by a series of displays combining custom millwork and oversized dimensional lettering, as well as digital and interactive technology. New interior finishes, including a branded paint scheme and polished concrete floor, were introduced throughout the space to compliment the graphic storytelling.
A signage and wayfinding program was also implemented. Capitalizing on the new placemaking system, the wayfinding strategy was able to be simplified into a minimal and intuitive signage system. Graphically incorporated into the storytelling, the signage family became both a bold statement and effective navigational tool.
The rich history of Texas A&M on the court can be discovered in all areas of the space—exciting fans, taunting rivals, and uniting the Aggieland community. Gig ‘em!
