Thursday, April 11th, 2024

Four Graphic Design seniors have been honored by GDUSA for their packaging designs, recognition given to just a small percentage of the entries in the annual competition.

Rachael Clough, Maliyah Gregg, Cleo Kendrick, and Austin Taylor — all seniors in Prof. Tom Newmaster‘s Packaging Design class — were among the 10 percent of 2,400-plus entries to be so honored. 

The 61st annual competition, Newmaster says, honored work these seniors completed during the Fall 2023-2024 semester. “Marketers and retailers are challenged as never before to convey their message and promote their brand,” according to GDUSA. “Package design — along with point-of-purchase and retail graphics — is increasingly the difference maker.”
