Kelemen Earns UCDA Award for Hatch Show Print Poster
Adjunct Instructor Bob Kelemen earned an Award of Excellence for a poster he designed for the Hatch Show Print visit to the Type High Press last spring. The competition was part of the 42nd Annual Conference of the University and College Designers Association (UCDA), which was held in Montreal, Canada from Oct. 13-16. The UCDA Design Competition evaluated more than 1,100 print and digital media entries and gave only 163 awards. Kelemen’s design was one of 150 Awards of Excellence.
Hatch Show Print has been operating as a letterpress print shops in Nashville, Tennessee since 1879. Currently housed in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the company is known for its signature typeface used widely in posters for the country music industry. Hatch Show Print posters are an icon of American culture, music and graphic arts.
Kelemen's poster was designed and printed on one of seven Type High presses in the School of Visual Communication Design (VCD). Kelemen teaches the Type High Press course in VCD this semester.
