Studio Red Bank Hosts Entrepreneur Competition; RBSD Student Wins!
On a summer trip to help a friend move to Colorado, student Stephen Sepulveda found inspiration for a Portfolio project, “Views and Brews.” In Colorado, Stephen observed lots of great hiking and almost as many craft breweries. He combined the two into one business idea—a travel agency that provided hiking excursions of Colorado’s breathtaking scenery, coupled with tours and experiences at local breweries.
I worked with Stephen to develop his brand idea and identity, and Professor Ed Johnston worked with him in Mobile Design to create a user experience and a mobile app and video to communicate the concept. The project was so believable that Ed and I convinced Stephen to enter his project in StudioRedBank’s “We Love Making Ideas Fly” competition, which helps aspiring entrepreneurs to make their ideas a reality.

In January 2016, Stephen’s idea was accepted into the competition, and in March, he learned he had won! We are extremely proud of you, Stephen, and we look forward to taking one of your Views and Brews tours!
