Student Led. Student Run.

1893 Brand Studio skillfully merges traditional storytelling values with today’s modem marketing strategies. Nearly 131 years after the publication of the first Daily Tar Heel newspaper, we’re still committed to educating students, serving the community and marketing the local businesses that make Chapel Hill home to many.

Building on the world-class education they’re receiving at our next-door neighbor UNC-Chapel Hill, we train our staff to tell captivating stories, uncover future-proofing insights and connect brands with their audience. Together, 1893 storytellers determine the best way to communicate your business’s story and solve all of your marketing problems.
