Waubonsee Graphic Design Students Recognized

Students in Waubonsee Community College Graphic Design classes recently earned recognition in a poster competition.

The students in Graphic Design I and Graphic Design II courses at Waubonsee participated in the Emilio Del Rosario (EDR) Music Foundation’s International Young Artist Piano Concerto poster design competition. The designs were submitted to and voted on by a selection committee.

Waubonsee’s Bethany Gunderson earned first place, Dharti Patel earned second place and Benjamin Petschke earned third place.

The EDR Music Foundation fosters artistic excellence in gifted young pianists and composers, and is based in Palatine, Ill. The poster designs are used to promote the young artists’ piano concerts.

John Fu, Waubonsee Professor of Graphic Design, said that the president of the EDR Music Foundation asked him to submit poster designs in the past, and he asked her to also consider allowing his students to submit their work in order to build up their resumes.

Fu said the winning entry is on the cover of next year's competition program booklet and will be featured on EDR Music Foundation website.  Others will be used for announcements, concert publicity, and fundraising.
