A t-shirt game...a casual Icebreaker...to name a few: fun for travel, conventions and meetings, runs & races, the gym, walks and bike rides...and with social media share your U story.

b ing stuck on a layover in an airport and wishing I was wearing something to help start a conversation motivated me to create U clues. I remember feeling like I wanted to b wearing something interactive... the idea came later to me to put a text design together on a t-shirt that was actually a guessing game... this could be a fun way to inspire a casual encounter, a way to meet some new people while traveling. I thought it would work on a travel mug as well.

From my background and experience I was picking up on the trends of the increasing popularity of TV game shows, the ongoing popularity of online games and the continuing explosion of social media and thought to bring a game to a t-shirt.

Also from my background and experience. I can easily recognize identifiable motifs and intuitively wanted to pick clues that told a story. U clues tells the story of b ing on campus. I wanted it to make the wearer feel like they were right there and to bring back memories if you happen to be an alum and to be able to share their own unique story while having a conversation.

Reflecting on how I picked a lot of the clues I realized that they came not only from graduating from Miami University but also from "growing-up" on this campus. I am the daughter of a Microbiology Professor and would occasionally go to my Dad's office with him on weekends, attended many events on campus and I went to Miami University's Laboratory School, McGuffey. A part of the culture of McGuffey was playing games as an educational tool and storytelling. And it's something a little more
prodesse quam conspici.

U clues is a text design, remembering that one of the first questions typically asked when meeting new people is where did you go to school...so the clues come from the college or university... year established, iconic stadiums, walkways, motto, historic buildings, famous memorials, inscribed words, etc. Incorporating the unique features of each college or university along with words from
college life.

Great for meetings and team building, especially corporate office events and sales meetings.

Share your own unique story...alums, in coming freshman, upper class men, graduate students, professors, administrators, staff, parents fans and visitors!

Host a coffee or party displaying U clues travel mugs and share favorite stories with your cronies!

U clues is customizable for each University (or College).

Ideal for online businesses and utilizing social media streams to reach targeted customers. Universities and Colleges can expand their business and reach alums through social media and YouTube advertising and marketing.
