Student Work Celebrated at 2017 School-wide Honors Show
The Kent State University School of Visual Communication Design (VCD) celebrated our talented students during the second annual Honors Exhibition on Thursday, Feb. 16, 2017. The Best of Show winner received a $200 award, and top-honor mentions were presented in design, illustration and photography.
“The faculty-curated showcase features top-level student work from the freshman through the graduate level,” according to show producer and VCD Assistant Professor Jillian Coorey. “It’s something to put on their resume, and it’s nice to be able to recognize the quality work that our students are doing.”
The School of VCD strives to generate opportunities for students to present their creative designs to the public and to meet with their peers, alumni and local business owners.
Congratulations to all students chosen to show at the 2017 Honors Exhibition and to the following top-honor winners.
