Four graphic design seniors present theses on Friday Dec. 8

On Dec. 8, Kelsey Hanko, Emily Fitzpatrick, Alicia Yarlet, and myself will present our senior theses. Each of us have worked hard these past two semesters to put together some interesting pieces of design work.

The showcase will be located in the Blackberry Farm Gallery and the William EdHarmon Gallery in the Clayton Center for the Arts. There will be a reception to follow with all the essential art gallery food and drink. The gallery space will be open from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and the artwork will be displayed until Dec. 15. Yes, each of us are design majors, but we use our different styles to bring you artwork of all kinds.

Kelsey Hanko built a visual identity for a sustainable art shop called The Sustainable Artist. The Sustainable Artist is an art store that strives to promote socially, economically and environmentally responsible artists. Hanko is a double major in design and marketing and will graduate this December.

Emily Fitzpatricks senior study focuses on typographic trends throughout the 21st century, which includes trends like handwritten and minimalist trend types. Fitzpatrick is a senior design major who will graduate this May.

Alicia Yarlett is a senior design major who will graduate this December and has titled her show Gospel.

My goal of this show is to share the Gospel of Jesus so people who dont know Him have the chance to, Yarlett said.

I decided to concentrate on a mixed-medium project and combine photography and typography to create positive feminist portraits. All Feminismis a new feminist identity that represents and celebrates the diversity between men and women of different races, religions, ethnicities and experiences.

Its about starting a conversation, continuing the conversation and taking this newly formed fourth wave of feminism to a fully formed identity. I am a design major and will graduate this May.

We are overjoyed to be able to present our hard work to the community, so please join us on Dec. 8 for our spectacular design senior thesis showcase.
