Graphic design students give Jared Box Project a facelift

The goal of the Jared Box Project is to uplift the spirits of children in the hospital. The boxes themselves—as well as the project website and related materials—recently got a “lift” of their own, thanks to Penn State Graphic Design students Meagh Cafferty and Annie Seighman. After designing a new logo for the Jared Box Project as part of a class assignment, Cafferty and Seighman went on to volunteer their time to redesign the non-profit organization’s website and marketing materials.

A Jared Box – named for a State College boy who died of cancer in 2001 – is a plastic storage box filled with age- and gender-appropriate gifts, toys and other activities. Individuals and organizations across the country buy and fill the boxes, affix a Jared Box label, and deliver them to local hospitals. The labels, which now feature the new logo, are downloaded from the Jared Box Project website. More than 200,000 Jared Boxes have been delivered in 47 states.
