It would be any designer's dream to see thousands of people wearing their work -- and for Amanda Choong '24, that opportunity came true in April. Choong, a Graphic Design major, was commissioned by YWCA Lancaster to update the look of Lancaster's Race Against Racism logo and branding. And that's no small order: YWCA Lancaster's event, in its 26th year, is the nation's longest consecutively run Race Against Racism, with more than 3,000 community members turning out to support the organization's Center for Racial and Gender Equality. ...

Chris McKinney has worked a summer job for the same lighting rental company that employs his dad. But shadowing behind the scenes at the recent iHeart Radio Music Awards β€” PCA&D’s first Live Experience Design & Production major to be awarded the opportunity β€” raised his interest in the industry to a whole new level. He also is the first LiveX student to have the chance to intern on a live broadcast awards show. McKinney, a Foundation Year student, recently returned from Los Angeles, where he spent days and nights in the Dolby Theatre working as an intern on this year’s awards show production. His experience was made possible through the unique partnership PCA&D has with the Academy of Live Technology at Rock Lititz, a partnership that prepares art and design students for jobs in this growing industry. ...

When the Lancaster Stormers baseball team takes the field for opening day this week, a little piece of PCA&D also makes its lineup debut. A new ballcap design, created by Graphic Design junior Maddie Reynolds, will go on sale in the team's store. "I was looking at what younger generations are into, and also wanted to pull in a vintage feel," said Reynolds, a native of Parkesburg, Pa. Her end result, a curved "Stormers" text superimposed over an outline of homeplate, carries over that simple, but vintage, vibe. Five finalists β€” Warren Burke, Bahir Harris, Aiyana Alvarado, and Leslie Bosch, along with Reynolds β€” were chosen, and Reynolds' design was chosen by a public vote on social media. ...

Your diplomas are #SignedAndSealed, Class of 2024! You're almost there πŸŽ“

Alex Smith, a Foundation student in the Live Experience Design & Production major, had worked a couple of music festivals before. But his recent week at the P'al Norte festival in Mexico, "seeing it all in action, the actual 'we have to go live now' experience" was on a different level altogether. For six days, Smith had the chance not only to shadow industry professionals, but also to gain some hands-on experiences, working behind the scenes on the festival's stages. "Meeting with everyone at a higher level and watching them work on (the festival) at that level ... getting the chance to work hands-on at something like this, with everyone being so super open and nice" has confirmed his interest in pursuing live experience as a career, Smith said. ...
