University of Kansas Basketball Locker Room

Rock Chalk,

Jayhawk

As one of the most prestigious men’s collegiate basketball teams in the nation, the KU men’s basketball coaching staff wanted to up their game in the locker room. They turned to Dimensional Innovations under a tight timeline for what was to be a “dream job” according to DI CEO, Tucker Trotter. DI tapped into the rich history of the team to create environmental branding and theming to modernize and update the space. KU competes with the best teams in college basketball. The new space is designed to make a recruit understand what it’s like to be part of an amazing team and tradition. Sports Illustrated magazines line the hallways featuring former KU greats and large graphics overlaid with inspirational quotes will motivate players for years.
