Each term, Graphic Design & Digital Media students at JWU Providence’s School of Engineering & Design show off their design chops at a portfolio review.

Design professor Karyn Jimenez-Elliot captured their wide range of impressive work, from concept sketches to logos, identity systems and complete websites. (View her complete Flickr gallery here.)

Each student had a chance to talk about his or her creative process and present a selection of favorite work. The student designers are:

  • Sean Andrews
  • Jesse Beckerman
  • Briana Charbonneau
  • Taylor DellaPenna
  • Genevieve Dugan
  • Andrea Fish
  • Keegan Hernandez
  • Yessenia Jaime
  • Alex Lebon
  • Stephanie Lopez
  • Craig Nelson
  • Leeana Nito
  • Kendall Peterkin
  • Jiana Salvatore
  • Kadijah Smallwood
  • Emily Teter
  • Zachariah Vickers
  • Christopher Wynn
  • Kristopher Zurwell

There was plenty of ambitious work on display, including a complete identity system for Providence Parks (Cammie Niles, Emily Teter and Larren Witter), and a nontraditional tourism campaign for a traditional Tennessee whiskey company, Buckwood (Taylor DellaPenna).

Craig Nelson gave himself a unique challenge: To improve his ideation, branding and time management skills, he gave himself one hour a day to create a fictional brand and a companion logo. “The project helped me explore and experiment with color, type, illustration and iconography like I have never done before.”

Craig also collaborated with his classmates Travis Thurston and Andrea Fish on a stop-motion animation video for JWU Counseling Services.
