Northwestern’s McCormick School of Engineering

Challenge

Most recruitment and marketing videos for universities strive for simple beauty: linear and drama-free. But that’s not how engineering works. The essence of higher education as practiced at Northwestern’s McCormick School of Engineering is complex and imaginative, different from the others. How can that be captured?

There were other points to consider. Northwestern’s new branding standards need to be quickly grasped and interpreted with respectful creativity. Of course, return on investment was part of the equation as well. 

We knew we had to do something different to encapsulate our mission and serve different audiences, from prospective students and faculty to alumni and donors. But we didn’t know what that new way would be.
— Kyle Delaney, Executive Director of Strategic Initiatives and Marketing, Northwestern Engineering

Behind the Scenes
The film’s audio track is constructed from 16 hours of Mode-directed location audio interviews. We recorded in classrooms, labs, roundtable discussions, as well as more traditional interview setups — all intended to capture authentic snippets of energetic sound bites. A streamlined B-roll shoot provided original visual content.
