Roxo’s faculty advisor, Sarah Angle, shared how students had the opportunity to develop the logo, name, design, and some of the event details for the Forte Awards.
“This Roxo account team was tasked with rebranding this small business awards event into an experience that would attract millennials while retaining long-time attendees,” said Angle. “The goal was to bring the experience to life in a new way and show the innovative spirit and fresh ideas that the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce is creating for our community.”
Violet Herzfeld, a communication and media studies major, worked on this project with Roxo before she graduated in May.
“They had a vision and trusted us to help them make it come to life,” said Herzfeld. “It was really exciting to get to work on something brand new and so important to the Fort Worth community.”
The students who worked on this project had the opportunity to attend the Forte Awards and see their hard work come to life.
“It was a fun night full of local creatives and entrepreneurs getting recognized for making our city great,” said Herzfeld.
Andra Bennett House, vice president of communications at the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce, worked directly with Roxo for the Forte Awards.
Roxo will be working with the Chamber again this fall.
