Exhibit Opens Featuring Georgia Southern Graphic Design Students
The Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art at Georgia Southern University presents its 2013 Graphic Design Portfolio Reveal. The exhibition, on display in the Center for Art and Theatre, 233 Pittman Drive, from April 26 to May 1, features a reception Friday, April 26, from 5 – 7 p.m. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
The Graphic Design Portfolio Reveal is a comprehensive presentation of the ideas and images that each student has investigated during the last semester of their academic pursuits in the graphic design program.
“Students are bringing four years of experience to this exhibition,” said Santanu Majumdar, a graphic design faculty member. “They plan and create a portfolio that is centered around the type of industry they want to work in – such as advertising, branding, web design, product packaging, information design, icon and sign systems. They not only showcase this during the exhibition, but also use it as a professional portfolio to obtain the careers they desire.”
The 2013 Graphic Design Portfolio Reveal includes the work of students Allison Bright, Emily Cannady, Ajanae Carswell, Melissa Cruz, Pauline Dorsey, April Faison, Tyler Fleider, Elizabeth Fry, Meredyth Frye, Carly Hayes, Giovanna Heindel, Katherine Johnson, Brittany Kolar, Laura Mileson, Kelsey Paone, Rocky Roark, Lindsey Rowland, Andrew Salkill, Collin Schwartz, Max Searan, Sara Spates and John Takacs.
The graphic design program of the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art comprises a dynamic and multifaceted curriculum led by exceptional faculty. Every year, the department graduates several gifted and diverse designers that successfully transition to various careers within the design profession.
