The Graphic Design Senior Exhibition is the culminating event for this year’s group of graphic design majors. As part of the Senior Studio in Graphic Design class, students prepare a body of work suitable for a designer’s portfolio. This process includes the creation of new work as well as the refinement of existing work. The show is a forum for the community, professionals, family, and friends to see our student’s work, as well as meet with the designers personally during the show’s reception.
This year’s juror, Jez Babarczy, is a partner at the Houston based design studio Nuu Group, which specializes in branding, print and packaging, video, and telling their client’s stories.
A professional musician turned professional designer and business owner, Jez graciously took a day off from work earlier this week to meet our students and jury this years show. We asked him to evaluate the work presented by these 19 students, and he selected the work that he found to be most successful in a range of areas, and worthy of recognition.
Designers include Emily Barrow, Katie Bledsoe, Brittney Butler, Kari Cook, Brittany Crowson, Haley Dolive, Amanda Garza, Taylor Guest, Cori Gurka, Michelle Kitchens, Jackson Mahlke, Ashton Miller, Kayla Nowocin, Drake Preston, Melissa Randolph, Brianna Smith, Alyssa Williams, Sarah Wright, and Kimberly Young.
