Shelby Hughes, senior graphic design student from Rosendale, Mo., and Emily Stojevich-Swenson, senior graphic design student from St. Joseph, recently had their work accepted into the Ninth Annual National Student Show and Conference in Dallas from April 11-13. This was a highly selective competition with over 1,200 entries from colleges and universities from across the nation. The conference, sponsored by the Dallas Society of Visual Communications, is the only national creative competition and design conference just for students.
Hughes’ work, a series of five Trails West! posters, was one of only nine posters accepted for the national show. Stojevich-Swenson’s packaging project for Kettles and Cups Tea Company was one of only eleven selected from the packaging category.
The conference features nationally known keynote speakers, breakout design sessions, workshops, panel discussions and studio tours. The students will have the chance to have their portfolios reviewed by some of the industry’s leading design and advertising professionals.
