Cushing-Martin Gallery Presents Graphic Design Annual
April 04, 2012
The Cushing-Martin Gallery at Stonehill College will present "The Graphic Design Annual 2012," from April 5 - April 27.
Exhibiting seniors include Nicole Casinelli, Debra Coppola, Michelle Cotennec, Nina Crossley, Steve Daversa, Kathryn Dziurzynski, Larry Jakubowicz, Ashley Johnston, Chrystine Muncherian, Steve Polito, Luke Selinger, and Vlada Shelkova.
In past years, the Graphic Design Annual solely highlighted senior graphic designers and their completed works. This year, the senior graphic designers want to reinforce the concepts behind their work. They will not only show final products, but also present initial problems, their creative process and the solution at which they have arrived.
The annual exhibit will focus on publication, package, website, motion graphics, identity, and promotional design; all of which, students have designed works for.
Students have faced unique problems and found specific solutions to this various collection of graphic design classifications. Their time, effort and passion is evident in all of their work. The Graphic Design Annual is not only an exhibition of the seniors' portfolios, but is also a tool which will hopefully raise an appreciation of the hard work that goes into graphic design.
Graphic design is everywhere. For the most part, it's in places one would least expect - on an iPhone alarm that rings in the morning, on a favorite t-shirt, or on a cereal box during breakfast. It crawls across storefronts, flows onto street signs and dives into subway maps. It's the layout of a Facebook profile, a notification on Twitter and a creative pin on Pinterest.
Graphic Designers are creative problem solvers. They are constantly presented with challenges that demand them to draw on inspiration and push creativity to the limit. It is this talent of creative ingenuity that is often overlooked and cannot be understood by simply viewing a final design.
