Designing men

Brandon Hunter '10 and Jake Mace's graphic design work won awards in the FLUX AIGA student competition. Jake won merit awards for two posters and Brandon won a merit award for a website design. AIGA is a professional association for design.

"I wanted to do posters about AIDS that would inspire giving to worthy organizations," Jake said. "Within the message I wanted to emphasize the fact AIDS is no longer an immediate death sentence and that there is as much effort given to help those with AIDS live healthy, fulfilling lives as there is to finding a cure. These posters will be donated to area AIDS organizations to use at their discretion."

"The Bower Center for the Arts is a non-profit organization in Bedford, Virginia," Brandon said. "The goals of the center are to promote the arts and arts education. The project was recommended to me by Beverly Rhoads, professor of art at LC. I worked on this client piece this past summer, meeting with the center periodically to review my progress. In the end, the center received a design that focused on large images and a clean grid. The website runs off of Wordpress, a popular blogging platform, giving the center the ability to edit their content on demand."
