The holiday issue of figLancaster magazine (shown above) features faculty and students who make our annual 24-hour Designathon a success. [Ad courtesy of Moxie House LLP, copyright 2012.]

In the print version of the fig ad, we wrote that “PCA&D’s designers connect with community.

“For the past four years, faculty and students at Pennsylvania College of Art & Design have led one of our best-known projects: the 24-hour Designathon.


“Designathon has linked PCA&D with two dozen nonprofits serving more than 200,000 people in Lancaster County.  And we’ll do it again in February 2013 with a new group of nonprofits, because PCA&D is always involved with the community in creative and influential ways.”


So, who’s in this photo? Look below – we have everyone identified.  You’ll see who our Designathon faculty and students are, and see representatives from a few of the 25+ nonprofits we’ve worked with during Designathon. 


And continue to watch this News page and PCA&D's Facebook wall for updates of the 5th annual Designathon, which will be held on Friday and Saturday, February 22 and 23.
