Ad Design Students Tackle the Arts
This spring, seven teams of MCCC advertising design students had their eyes on the arts. Each developed marketing campaigns for the Mercer County Cultural & Heritage Commission’s “Eyes on Mercer” arts initiative, set to take place October 15-17. The student work was judged by a panel of experts on May 10; two teams tied for first place.

Using a variety of mediums mastered throughout four semesters of study, the students presented print advertising pieces such as transit and rail posters, public relations media kits, web and new media materials, and other promotional items. More here.


Graphic Design Club Designs, Sells T-Shirts for Haitian Relief
The MCCC Graphic Design Club raised funds by selling specially-designed t-shirts during Spring Day and beyond for the American Red Cross Haitian Relief Fund. So far the students have helped raise $680. The t-shirt was designed by Advertising Design graduate Nicole Williams, who is transferring this fall to The Art Institute of Chicago to study graphic design, with a minor in photography. According to faculty member Tina LaPlaca, "The students worked very hard for their community service project and continue to sell the t-shirts." Contact laplacat@mccc.edu.
