A dozen students and staff from the University Union attended the Region V ACUI (Association of College Unions-International) conference in Minneapolis last weekend. The Union’s marketing and promotions team had eight entries in the graphics competition, with designs that dominated the competition. Among them:
• Logan Sprangers, first place in the Multipage Publication Design category for the Spring Good Times Programming booklet;
• Ranita Haanen, second place in Brochure Design for the Great Beginnings Week foldable brochure;
• Sprangers, second place in the Poster category for his promotion of the visiting lecturer Anita Sarkeesian, who spoke on women’s image in gaming, last April;
• Kimmy Schwarzenbart won first for her chalk wall art in the Phoenix Club in the Large Media Design category. Schwarzenbart’s Chalk Walls designs then went on to win “best of show” for the entire Graphics Contest for ACUI Region V.
