Graphic Design Students Take Home Top Honors
Posted 11.05.10 by MICA communications
A team of four MICA students received first-place honors for their entry in Visualizing.org's recent Visualizing Marathon, a 24-hour design competition in New York that encourages students to use design to tackle complex, real-world problems. Twenty teams from eight design schools were challenged to visualize the impact of humanity's footprint, and the winning visualization was created by MICA graphic design students Christina Beard, Christopher Clark, Chris McCampbell, and Supisa Wattanasansanee. The design, One Day Cause + Effect, which looks at energy emissions and water use over a 24-hour period, was lauded by the jury for its personal narrative, striking design, and clear ability to be understood by the viewer.
Another MICA team received an honorable mention and included students Isabel Uria, Ann Liu, Melissa Barat, and Bryan Connor.
