Ivy Court Inn & Suites

client testimonial


The former Jamison Inn of South Bend, was forced to change its name when the “Signature Inn” national chain changed theirs to Jameson Inn, with a property nearby. After adopting the name “Ivy Court Inn and Suites”, and logo, the Inn began a major $1M renovation with the goal of upgrading their look to “boutique contemporary”.

Ivy Court’s Notre Dame alumni-owners aligned with Bodnar of BDC and her teaching studio at Notre Dame to fully flush out the new identity.

Updated business cards, brochures, ads, and signs play off the new tagline "you're inn". Bodnar dubbed Ivy Court's new interiors look "soft modern" and created mood boards and design plans for room artwork, lobby furnishings and entry signage.
