The Hallways Speak Volumes at Hofstra’s Lawrence Herbert School of Communication

The story of Pantone® comes to life—not just audibly, but now, visually—in the hallways at Hofstra University, the alma mater of the man who invented the global language of color. After graduating from Hofstra and serving in the Korean War, Lawrence Herbert joined Pantone Press, then a division of an advertising company. He went on to buy the business, rename it Pantone Inc., and develop the Pantone Matching System for colors. The university renamed its communications school in 2013 to honor Herbert’s accomplishments.

Hofstra Herbert School of Communication

This is just one of nearly a dozen displays engaging current and prospective students at the Lawrence Herbert School of Communication. Duggal Visual Solutions worked directly with the school’s dean, Mark Lukasiewicz, and his team to create a series of murals, photographic prints, dimensional panels, and lettering. Students returned from intersession to an enlivening and inspiring experience capturing the Herbert School’s past, present, and future—produced in perfectly matched Pantone® colors, of course.

“It was important to all of us that we executed Mr. Lukasiewicz’s vision without compromising that of Mr. Herbert,” said Rob Krolick, who led the project for Duggal. “The Herbert School of Communication offers so many exciting options for students. To be able to put our stamp on the experience of a creative audience is rewarding on many levels.”
