Update on The Nick Moore Scholarship
The Nick Moore Memorial Scholarship was established in memory of Nick Moore (1960-2021) for students in the School of Visual Communication Design (VCD) in the College of Communication and Information (CCI). This scholarship honors him by supporting student designers much in the way that Moore supported student interns and younger designers at Kent State throughout his career.
Throughout Kent State University and even in the city of Kent, you’ll find echoes of Moore’s influence in signage, logos, printed materials, video and online executions. For 31 years, Moore had a hand in most of the design projects that were produced for the university, either directly as a designer or indirectly as a mentor and creative director.
Moore graduated from Kent State in 1990. He began his career with the university in the Office of Alumni Relations. In that time, he was responsible for creating all alumni communications, including the university’s first full-color, glossy alumni magazine.
When he moved to University Communications and Marketing, he helped create hundreds of creative, strategic communications and designs for nearly every campus, college, division, department and organization within the university. He was influential in shaping Kent State’s brand message over the decades. At the time of his passing in 2021, he was the creative director of University Communications and Marketing.
Moore served the university through the administrations of six university presidents and was a mentor to a great number of student design interns as well as other designers across the university. He was a passionate supporter of Kent State and was always happy to help with any project.
Moore’s contributions to Kent State endure. His humor, talent and genuine, caring heart are greatly missed.
To honor Nick and the students he believed in, please make your gift to The Nick Moore Memorial Scholarship.
