2006 Michigan State University Design Contest for College Students

“2006 SND National Post Contest” Judge Quotes:

“This page has very even use of color.  It was well thought out.  Thinking outside the box with the ripped photo.  The type is very dynamic, dramatic and clean.  It’s a student paper, and it feels like one.” (Front Page category judge)

“I love the way it tells you the story.  It conveys everything you need to know about what happened here.  This graphic is very quiet and does not take away from the main art.” (Advertising category judge, Syracuse #3)

“Broad appeal, creative, memorable, and gets to the point.  It says everything it needs to say clearly.” (Advertising category judge)

“Clearly a winner.  It stood out, cropped perfectly; it is a great photograph.” (Photograph category judge commenting on first place entry)

“The headline and illustration work together.  It has a pleasing graphic image and the piece is conceptually simple.” (Art & Illustration~ ’Fall in Love’)

“As a piece of art, it works beautifully rendering great palette and has nice composition.” (Art & Illustration)
