HOW International Design Awards

An annual competition that recognizes design excellence on a global scale. Three student projects received a merit award.

Project: Quirk Theatre: Shakesqueer 2017
Student Designer: Theodor Swanson
Photographer: Theodor Swanson
Instructor: Eric Karnes
Conceptual identity for Quirk Theatre, a company that produces LGBTQ theatrical works. Inspired by a combination of Elizabethan portraiture, queer theory, punk fanzines, and postmodern graphic design, the Shakesqueer season challenges assumptions of gender and heteronormativity. The system incorporates original collage, photography, and illustration into four posters, a program, and a responsive home page.

Project:
Knock Out Experimental Book
Student Designer: Jermaine Boca
Instructor: Sandy Stewart
Experimental typography and non-traditional materials combine to create a publication about typography for readers with an interest in type and type designers. Transparent materials reveal and obscure information as they reform the composition of the pages.

Project: Alex Prager Artist Catalog 
Student Designer: Morgan Gelfand
Instructor: Mark Willie
I was inspired by the drama and nostalgia in Alex Prager’s photos. To emphasis her uniqueness, I decided to create a different kind of artist catalog, with a portfolio and three books, to give it a feeling of importance and to set it apart from the run-of-the-mill coffee table book. Each book represents one of her photo series: Face in the Crowd, Week-End, and Compulsion.

Project: This Concerns You, The Psychology of the Con 
Student Designer: Walter Wilkes
Photographer and or Illustration: Walter Wilkes
Instructor: Jody Graff
Gold Award
This publication design examines the key factors of manipulation and the human mind. "This Concerns You" aimed to challenge what print design represents as a medium. Each experimental layout represents part of the con artists handbook. This book does not represent all kinds of manipulation, but it will walk you through the building blocks that play a role in all cons.

Project: Not Your Great Uncle’s Pickles Rigid Packaging
Student Designer: Morgan Gelfand
Food Photography: Morgan Gelfand
Instructor: Jody Graff
Silver Award
The assignment for this project was to create rigid packaging for a product of our choice. I decided to create a pickling kit, because I felt that it was an interesting subject matter and could include some fun imagery! I decided that the kit was for experimentation, so I wanted to evoke a science experiment kit with the design of my outer box as well as the test tube shaped spice jars. I also included a poster for the buyer to decide what spices to use to pickle their chosen fruit or veggie. I did all of the food photography on my coffee table. 

Project: PomPom Rice
Student Designer: Jermaine Boca
Photographer (or Illustration, etc): Jermaine Boca
Instructor: Sandy Stewart
Silver Award
PomPom rice stacks and displays to reveal the product and fits in small storage compartments. The architectural design of each box updates a simple product to contemporary gourmet food. 

Project: Overkill
Student Designer: Taylor Murphy
Photographer (or Illustration, etc): Taylor Murphy
Instructor: Sandy Stewart
Platinum Award
Overkill is targeted toward those that need pest control in their homes and have never used the products before. Using a series of punk-ish images, the product provides a humorous guide to eliminating mice, rats and household insects. 

Project: Univers Typeface Poster
Student Designer: Max Kahn
Instructor: Shushi Yoshinaga
Bronze Award
A poster project requires research, which students learn to apply into their design. The research includes finding the history of the typeface. In addition, students must look into the historical, cultural and/or political backgrounds and how these components might have influenced both designer and their typefaces. “Research” for designers must include visual research. How these pieces transform into their final design was guided through exercises that are designed for students to explore and to discover their own creative solutions.

Project: Wonder Restaurant Identity
Student Designer: Taylor Murphy
Instructor: Alexandra Doyle
Bronze Award
Brand identity for Wonder, a contemporary diner located in Burlington, Vermont. Influenced by 1950’s diners and photography of rural America, Wonder is designed to have a modern approach to traditional American diners. The menu doubles as a short photography book, allowing you to see imagery taken throughout the United States while viewing the food Wonder serves. 

 Compilation of the seven award-winning works of the GDUSA competition

The 53rd Annual GDUSA American Graphic Design Awards

The Graphic Design Awards honors outstanding new work of all kinds: print, packaging, point-of-purchase, internet, interactive and motion graphics.
Seven student projects received a Winner Certificate of Excellence Award.

Project: A Journey of Grand Proportions
Student Designer: Noel Forte
Instructor: Jody Graff
Photographer (or Illustration, etc): Noel Forte
Design a poster as a means of communicating and mapping information along a path, whether it be physical, geographic, or conceptual. This project specifically is focused on John Wesley Powell’s expedition through the Grand Canyon, the first one ever undertaken by white settlers. The poster incorporates a scanned watercolor texture for the landscape and features key points detailing the perils, encounters, discoveries, and departures of the expedition party as they ventured down the Colorado River.

Project: BLEED 
Student Designer: Pauline Nyren
Instructor: Sandy Stewart
Photographer (or Illustration, etc): Scanned from books about Hans Ulrich Obrist and handwriting text.
BLEED was an annual publication focused on ephemera and typography and writing as something human. This issue came in a box with a transparent cover that allows you to see the embroidered masthead and some other elements. The elements of the box are- a "post-it book"  showcasing Hans Ulrich Obrist's Instagram curation and an interview with him, a matchbox entitled "in case of emergency", a postcard saying "having so much fun without you", and the main publication in the form of a sketchbook. The topic was chosen because typography in our daily lives is personal and meaningful and I wanted to focus on the art of typography in a way that related to our daily lives.

Project: Recipe Restaurant
Student Designer: Chelsea Peterson
Instructor: Mark Willie
Photographer and Illustration: Chelsea Peterson
Recipe is a British farm-to-table restaurant with a vintage aesthetic and a touch of dark humor. The logo is based off gothic characters and set in a square to contrast the round setting of the type. The stationary then expands on the square to the shape of the business card and framing of the letterhead and envelope. The menu is designed in the style of a recipe book. Additional elements are coasters and a take away box in the shape of a coffin matching the skeleton illustrations used throughout the brand. The logo, skeletons, and other illustrations are all hand drawn. The textures and wooden type are my own photography.

Project: Queen of Tarts Restaurant Branding
Student Designer: Kaitlyn Troy
Instructor: Mark Willie
Photography/Illustration: Scanned photos and illustrations by Kaitlyn Troy
Concept for a specialty restaurant serving sweet and savory pies named after royals with a punk rock feel. The use of photo manipulation, collage and expressive compositions developed this brand identity. Menu design, logo system development and packaging units were the main deliverables of this project.

Project: A Common Thread: Tradition & Trend in Swedish Textiles
Student Designer: Theodor Swanson
Instructor: Jody Graff
Photographer: Theodor Swanson
This project is a scaled mock-up of a satellite exhibition set in a public space (such as 30th Street Station) intended to attract audiences to visit the permanent exhibition on Swedish Textiles at the American Swedish Historical Museum in South Philadelphia. I chose colors based on Swedish textiles and paired them with the blue of the Swedish flag as a constant throughout the exhibition. I incorporated elements of the weaving process such as the warp yarns, harnesses, heddles, beater, and warp beam to create a sculptural centerpiece for the exhibition. This satellite exhibit focuses on the process, history, and beauty of Swedish textiles.  It seeks to communicate basic information and leave those who view it with a desire to learn more about Swedish culture.

Project: Knockout, experimental publication/book
Student Designer: Jermaine Boca
Instructor: Sandy Stewart
Experimental typography and non-traditional materials combine to create a publication about typography for readers with an interest in type and type designers. Transparent materials reveal and obscure information as they reform the composition of the pages.

Project: Emerging Fashion Visionaries
Student Designer: Taylor Murphy
Instructor: Bob Warkulwiz 
A four book collection highlighting emerging fashion designers from different cities of the world: Craig Green, Eckhaus Latta, Jacquemus, and Gosha Rubchinskiy. Each book is designed based off of the designer's aesthetic and influences. Includes original collages throughout the books, and four posters highlighting images from each of the designer’s past collections.

Project: Animal Farm Book Cover 
Student Designer: Katie Troy
Instructor: Eric Karnes
Winner
This project was to re-design a classic novel. The inspiration behind the Animal Farm cover derived from the controversial topics brought up throughout the book. The collage on the cover is composed of an original illustration of a pig and bitmap image of Stalin.

Project: Apocalypse Now Film Poster 
Student Designer: Chelsea Peterson
Instructor: Mark Willie
Winner
This film poster represents the symbolism and messages of Apocalypse Now. The background texture and color exploding from behind the helicopter, a symbol of War, embodies Francis Ford Coppola’s focus on the confusion, violence, fear, and madness of the Vietnam War. The helicopter is hand drawn in a loose sketch style to convey the confusion on the ground in Vietnam and the typography, also hand drawn, is used as a parallel to the narrative voice over throughout the film.

Project: How To Get Away With Tourism poster 
Student Designer: Marianne Issa El-Khoury
Instructor: Jody Graff
Runner Up
Design a poster with a clear path or journey to aid the audience with humorous tips and tricks while traveling. The poster is pided into four sections: home, airport, airplane, and on location. Each scene is intertwined with the letters that make up the word “tourism,” activating the word and creating a more interactive experience.

Project: Yue Minjun Artist Catalogue 
Student Designer: Nicholas Kramer
Instructor: Mark Willie
Runner Up
Yue Minjun is part of China's Cynical Realism movement and is one of the most exciting modern artists to come out of China. I took his distinct style and decided to showcase it in a hardcover artist catalogue. A gate fold is presented in the middle of the catalogue to show a separation between articles and showcasing just artwork. The book is presented in a 10 inch by 14 inch book to highlight the absurdity and strangeness of Yue Minjun's self portraits. The typography used is also larger than life with extremely big pull quotes and article titles.

Project: Village Magazine
Student Designer: Aleksandra Ola Baldych
Instructor: Alexandra Doyle
Runner Up
village is a lifestyle magazine that focuses on jazz culture. The masthead features a classical serif typeface to indicate sophistication and balance that come from a deeper connection to music. The serifs indicate connection between the members of the community and connection between musicians playing together. The dot of the “i” is shifted to indicate human connection to the sun, worshiping of the sun, a spirituality that jazz is associated with.

Project: PomPom Rice
Student Designer: Jermaine Boca
Instructor: Sandy Stewart
Runner Up
PomPom rice stacks and displays to reveal the product and fits into small storage compartments. The architectural design of each box updates a simple product to contemporary gourmet food.

Project: Eastern Mountain Sports Gift Packaging
Student Designer: Karen Yee
Instructor: Jody Graff
This is a knockdown system, which means everything is engineered to fold (or unfold) to become flat, making shipping and storage easy until they are used. The boxes stack into a mountain shape, and are made out of a fibrous, cool white paper to give the boxes an organic quality and feeling. The bag is partially constructed of vellum, so that the imagery of the boxes can be seen through the bag, “bringing the outside indoors”.

Project: Crypto
Student Designer: Mike Garzarelli
Instructor: Bill Rees
Merit Award
CRYPTO is an exhibit that explores cryptozoology and the discovery of cryptids through an interactive iPad experience triggered by sensors embedded in the physical space. Visitors are introduced to the topic and invited to utilize their devices to "discover" the hidden animals. When cryptids are "discovered" by the iPads, pulsing concentric bands are projected on the wall in the vicinity of the animal, the details of which are revealed on the iPad. The visitor is then encouraged to learn more about the myths and legends that are associated with the particular cryptid.
