Last summer I collaborated with Rebecca Tegtmeyer and Marty Maxwell Lane in the design of two projects for NC State University.

In May, Marty and I worked for the First Year College to design The Brick, a 120 page book to welcome and orient the 2008 incoming freshman class into the university. The rest of the summer, Rebecca joined us as we worked for the College of Design on Collective Intelligence, Collaborative Design, the college’s research publication.

Last night, our work was recognized with two Merit Awards from the AIGA Chapters of Charlotte and Raleigh in their Fifth Biennial Design Competition, BOOM!

In addition to our work, other students of the College of Design were also recognized. Becca Mayfield, Nicole Kraieski, Lena Bondar and Ioana Balasa received a Merit Award for the design on the 2008 Windhover; while Libby Levi, Josh Smith, Paul Venturo and Becca Mayfield won a Silver Award for the 2007 Windhover.

The event, carried out at Charlotte’s Mint Museum of Art, meant to celebrate design that makes an impact—creative solutions that leave an impression, demand our attention, make us think and initiate change.

It was a fun night of design!
