Design Students Drafted to Help Brand New Major
The blending of design and science was evident as graphic design students recently shared their branding campaigns for Penn College’s new brewing and fermentation science degree. As a component of last semester’s Corporate Identity course (ART410) taught by Nicholas L. Stephenson, instructor of graphic design, students developed branding for the new major. The work of four students was selected to be presented to faculty and administrators tasked with launching the brewing and fermentation science degree. Senior graphic design students participating in the presentations were Ainsley R. Bennett, of Montoursville; Morgan N. Keyser, of Dillsburg; Andrea L. Neff, of Trout Run, and Eliza R. Whyman, of Williamsport. “The level of quality and creativity in these presentations was a true inspiration,” said Justin M. Ingram, assistant professor of biology. “Each presentation gave a unique perspective on branding, and the client committee identified aspects from all presentations we would like to incorporate.” The major will begin this fall.

When Life Gives You Snow … Turn It Into Art!
What better way to celebrate the first day of spring than by creating a snow sculpture? That’s what students in two of David A. Stabley’s art electives did Monday in front of the Bush Campus Center. Stabley, instructor of ceramics/wood sculpture, and students in Wood Sculpture and Ceramics II classes got out of the lab and into some creative exploration. Similar to other campus projects crafted by Stabley’s students (usually in fairer weather), their creation was inspired by the environmental art of famed British sculptor Andy Goldsworthy.
