Designathon 2011

(click image to enlarge)

For the third straight year, I participated in PCA&D's annual Designathon as faculty adviser to a design team of Central PA AIGA graphic design student members. Each year offers us new challenges, new experiences, and without fail – zero sleep, occasional hysterics, junk food, caffeinated beverages, and good times.

This year was no exception as I had the pleasure of working with former students of mine, and fellow type nerds, seniors Paul Sullivan and Josh Yinger. Our team was assigned to work with both Wendy Nagle and Mike Donnelly on merchandise designs for the fantastic Heritage Center, Quilt & Textile Museum, and the .918 Club – all historic and integral places of interest in my hometown of Lancaster, PA.

In order to ready several designs for their debut at the upcoming quilt show opening, 3 designs were chosen, revised, and finalized already for production – with hopefully more to come in the future. To view the complete set of designs in their original form, go here. To read more about Designathon 2011, go here.
