In collaboration with the Dishman Museum director, Megan Young I planned the first annual Lamar Graphic Design Showcase. The event had a keynote speaker from the local design community, students then displayed their work and local designer professionals provided insightful feedback about the projects. This event helped promote the student work as well as share with the local community our passion for graphic design.
I also served as art director for this project. I assisted in the creation and implementation of the brand materials for the event. As a class, students brainstormed to come up with a name for the event. These event materials were created by my students Rachel Binagia and Thomas Lee Harris Jr. In June 2013, Binagia and Harris won first place at the Southeast Texas Press Club Awards in the Special Events Publications category.
