Two Recent LC State Graduates Enter Poster Design Contest
LEWISTON – Two recent graduates of Lewis-Clark State College’s graphic communications program finished second and third in a poster design competition sponsored by the Printing Industries Association, Inc., of Southern California (PIASC).
Alex Austin of Clarkston placed second in the College category while Jazmyn Roy of Lewiston was third. Both graduated earlier this month with associate degrees in graphic communication.
PIASC supports and advocates for the graphics industry in 13 western states. Each year, it sponsors competitions, including the Northwestern States Student Competition, which is open to middle and high school students from Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington , Hawaii, Utah and Wyoming.
Each year, students are invited to create a poster that inspires students to learn more about the graphic design and printing industry. The themes for this year’s competition included ‘print is essential’, ‘print is imaginable’ and ‘print opens doors’.
Austin used “the print is imaginable” and his poster featured a cartoon head of a man dreaming that “the print is imaginable”. Roy used “the print opens doors” and drew an open door with sheets of paper blowing through the door.
Both students received small monetary awards for placing in the top three.
LC State offers a 60-credit associate degree in graphic communication.
