OVERVIEW:
Outdoor Adventure Company

Client / Client contact information:
www.oars.com

O.A.R.S. was founded in 1969 by river pioneer George Wendt. By 1974 the company found its permanent home in Angels Camp, California where George and his wife Pam turned a fledgling rafting company into what is now one of the most respected outfitting companies in the world.

Project:
Develop an 8 page brochure that explains the companies adventure options.

Background / Overview:
As O.A.R.S. guides we are the luckiest people on Earth. We not only get to “live” in some of the most beautiful places on this planet, even better, we get to expose and interpret the secrets of these fantastic rivers to O.A.R.S.’ clients. It’s better than being a pinch-hit delivery boy for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve. A great byproduct of all this is being able to awaken people to the urgent need to take part in defending these vanishing or threatened river canyons. Only by working together can we protect them for the future.”

What is the objective?
For most people, the experience starts the first time one of your friends or family members tells you about their trip with O.A.R.S.—each year, more than 70% of our travelers are repeat guests or were referred by a past O.A.R.S. traveler. You’ll feel it the first time you pick up the phone and call one our friendly and knowledgeable adventure consultants. Everyone from our president and founder to the more than 300 employees on our team is genuinely invested in every guest, every trip and every lifetime memory. That is the heart and soul of O.A.R.S. And it shows.

What do we want to say?
No other company’s guides do as much as ours to ensure you’re having the trip of a lifetime. We’re proud to have earned the reputation for having the most experienced, professional and customer-focused crews on the water.

Target Market?
Adults age 25 - 55

Additional info & insights:
Ranging from mild to wild and everything in between, O.A.R.S.’ multi-day trips are the ultimate way to access some of the best wilderness areas on the planet and there’s no better way to truly disconnect. Multi-day river trips are a great way to be active, experience nature, unwind, and reconnect with those who matter most.

Year Three, Project Overview: 

The process of formulating the essay will encourage each student to reflect upon their experiences and growth as a studio art major and provide a means for them to think seriously and communicate effectively about their own artwork as they prepare for their exhibition. The essay will be used, in coordination with the exhibition of work, as a tool for evaluating the student’s capstone experience.
