unique academic program icons similar in appearance to those

on the front cover, as well as at the top of the program's
description page. In addition to Holl, design team members
included Francis Paixao, Edyta Kuciapa, Brad Kent and Lori

in many years. She notes that the department has won numerous
awards from the Region 1 competition of the National Association

submit work to this prestigious national competition. We knew
this catalog would be a contender. I am very proud of my team,"
