Graphic Design 2020 exhibit moves online for first time

In keeping with other creative adjustments being made during the COVID-19 pandemic, Pennsylvania College of Technology’s annual graphic design student exhibit has moved online for the first time in its 12-year history.

Graphic Design 2020 showcases the portfolio work of 17 seniors: Charles A. Blake, West Chester; Andrew Caccese, Reading; Seifeldien A. Elerman, Dover; Adam Foelker, Myerstown; Kennedy L. Englert, Williamsport; Zoey J. Graybill, McAlisterville; Gavin E. Hain, Myerstown; Emily N. Latshaw, Danville; Meredith A. Long, Trevorton; Anthony M. Niemeyer, Red Lion; Ali D. Petrizzi, Langhorne; Madison P. Shrout, Petersburg; Justine A. Stage, Montoursville; Jessica L. Stanford, Marion Center; Hunter L. Tompkins, Richfield; Shaina T. Vanderveer, Monroeton; and David A. Walker Jr., Waynesboro.

Graphic Design 2020A May 1 reception for the exhibit was originally planned in The Gallery at Penn College, where graphic design students’ final portfolios have been showcased since May 2008.

“Given the unfortunate circumstances we face with COVID-19 and the need to cancel our annual exhibit featuring the work of our graduating seniors, we want to celebrate our senior class by highlighting their work on our departmental website,” said Brian A. Flynn, assistant professor of graphic design and department head. “This year’s graduates are a very motivated and talented group of designers. The art and design faculty feel badly that their show has been canceled but hope that everyone gets an opportunity to visit the website and view their excellent portfolios.”

The annual exhibition showcases the best graphic design, illustration and web design work of graphic design seniors. The exhibition gives students a chance to present their work in marketing, branding, advertising and design to industry professionals and the community.

Penn College graphic design students consistently earn recognition in regional, national and international design competitions.
