New JWU Brand Style Guide and Updated Graphic Standards

Johnson & Wales University has been working with creative agency 160over90 on marketing and communications for our recruitment and enrollment efforts. Last spring, representatives from the agency visited campus and rolled out JWU’s new brand concept to faculty and staff universitywide. Since then, the new brand has come to life, including the JWU’s Admissions Viewbook, other recruitment materials, the website, and JWU banners around the perimeter of campus.

The 160over90 Style Guide for Johnson & Wales is now available for use by the JWU community, and JWU Graphic Standards has also been updated. Learn about the differences and how to use them.

A Sweet Way to Say "Be Mine"

Chef Jaime Schick '07, Baking & Pastry Arts instructor, believes dessert should be fun and whimsical. With Valentine's Day approaching, she has developed recipes that will deliver the traditional message of the season – "Be Mine" – but with her distinctive signature.

Schick creates sophisticated interpretations of classics. Her goal, consistently, and one she imbues throughout her classes, is to simply serve the best dessert a guest will ever experience.

A 2007 graduate of JWU Providence, she earned a bachelor’s degree in baking & pastry and studied abroad in Switzerland. Later, she gained industry experience in bakeries and hotels in New England and Chicago, earning the title of pastry chef at No. 9 Park. In 2012, she was nominated for Food & Wine’s People’s Best New Pastry Chef award.

Schick joined the JWU International Baking & Pastry Institute in 2015. She is proud to have created and continue to lead New England's "Sugar Rush," an annual showcase of regional pastry chefs that benefits Bakes for Breast Cancer.

Schick's Valentine's 2019 recipes get right to the heart of culinary mantra:

Kate Walker: My Life as a Student–Athlete

Two-time All-American and Academic All-American Kate (Katherine) Walker is one of the top hitters in the country for women’s volleyball.

Here’s a look at that life — her life — on and off the court. Read more.
