Barry University Graphic Design Students to Design Christmas Card
In a first time event, students from ART 445-01, “Advertising Design & Production,” had the opportunity to participate in designing this year’s Barry University Christmas card. Sister Linda Bevilacqua, OP, PhD visited the class yesterday to recognize the students and announce which design had been chosen.

Although the holiday card goes out every year, this is the first year students have had the opportunity to design it.

“Sister Linda approached Steve Althouse after noticing the student graphic design work being utilized around the campus,” said associate professor of Graphic Arts, Tom Rockwell.

All 15 students in the class participated in the assignment, which asked students to draw on a word or image of “Peace.” The students, most of whom are graphic design majors, approached the job individually – beginning with ideas in their sketchbooks and then transferring these to computer designs.

Sister Linda chose Adriana Rullan’s design, an image that features a dove and a message reading, “Peace & Joy.”
