Brittani Takes Silver!

2021 SkillsUSA

Virtual National Leadership & Skills Conference
June 21 – 24, 2021

Congratulations to Graphic Design & Communications student Brittani Hodgkinson!

The Visual Art & Design Department of Salt Lake Community College is very proud of Brittani for bringing home the Silver Award in Advertising Design! Brittani placed second in this national contest showcasing career and technical education students. SkillsUSA conducts this contest annually as a partnership of students, teachers and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. SkillsUSA serves more than 372,655 students and instructors annually.

From Brittani:

“Here is my submission for SkillsUSA nationals. I had 1.5 hours to do a technical challenge by recreating an advertisement (not posted here), and then 4 hours to complete 30+ hand drawn thumbnails, a logo, three instagram ads, a bag design, and a sticker.”

“The company was Greenie Feelys: Love the Earth and the goal was to present eco-awareness in a new and refreshing way. My focus was on loving the planet, which is why my logo is the earth in the shape of a heart. We had to do two versions: full color and single color.”

“For the ads, I decided to do something lighthearted and yet serious underneath by using mythological/aliens as an excuse to love the planet. I would have loved to draw in an alien ship in the first ad, but time was so crunched, I didn’t make it. I hope that you enjoy these designs!”

SLCC Visual Art & Design Department Assistant Professor Virag White organized the state event to allow Brittani to participate virtually. This was no small feat due to many security paramaters put forth by SkillsUSA. Many thanks to Virag for her dedication in supporting Brittani and representing the SLCC Visual Art & Design Department and Graphic Design & Communications program, as an expert SkillsUSA advisor!

Kudos Brittani!




ALUMNI FOCUS: Davin, Sharon, Vince, Lacee, Cassidy, Brittani, Anamaye, Matt, Katrina, & Jen

Davin Abegg

“It’s been a minute since I’ve shared some of my recent drawings on here so here you go!”



Sharon Salmond Armstrong

“My students did a great job yesterday and today on their sidewalk chalk art. If you get a chance to go by Legacy Junior High I would highly recommend checking them out.”



Vince Bayless

“2021 Day 148: Air”

“Jim Bob Drawing Show prompt 5/27/21-Ironic Creature.”



Lacee Black

“How do you feel about revisiting old work? Lately I have been wanting to expand on this marigold pattern I created back in 2018 for a pattern challenge. I thought it would be fun to use it as a base to create more illustrations and patterns as a collection. Then, the question of whether to retain the look and feel of the original illustration style or to update it with the more current style I have been using for digital illustrations.”

“One more kid down! Now on to the pattern!!”

“And the pattern revamp is finally done! This was a lot of fun to do. Thanks for all the feedback and look forward to more patterns to go with this one.”



Cassidy Demkov

“A little floral I did for a recent project. I really love a good monotone floral but the color version was pretty too. Which is your favorite?”

“Have a great week.” 💛



Brittani Hodgkinson

“I LOVE haute couture! And Cruella has some crazy good pieces.”



Anamaye Sakura Lanayru

“It’s hot out there this week so we’re working from home if we can. Love this cute header graphic I made to make sure the department is informed.”



Matt Page

“T-shirt featuring a character from my book series. Those who are members of the Future Day Saints Fan Club know where to find it, everyone else will have to wait on the book, which comes out sometime soon.”

“Last night I learned that I won the 2021 Association for Mormon Letters Award for comics for my book Future Day Saints: Welcome To New Zion. I was frantically busy last night and didn’t have a chance to properly respond, but I would like to now.

It is a huge honor to have my little book recognized by AML, a juried award given out annually to the best works “by, for, and about Mormons.” It was an honor to be among the other nominees in all of the categories.

To be honest it came as a huge surprise. I never expected Future Day Saints to take off the way it has. It’s approach is so niche and esoteric that I was worried that nobody would get or care what I was trying to do.

So a huge thanks to AML and a huge thanks to everyone who has supported Future Day Saints over the last year. To those who interviewed me, reviewed my book, and asked me to speak to your classes. You can’t know how much it means to me.”

Katrina Parkinson

From Black Rabbit Studio:

“Last night was the last session of our eight week Portrait Drawing workshop! We had five amazing students in this class. Here is the last portrait demo created by instructor Katrina Flores. Thanks to all who participated!”

“I’m being encouraged by Hudson to work in my sketch book at least fifteen minutes a day during what has been a bit of a struggle in my life when it comes to my artistic endeavors. Tonight’s practice piece resulted in this mystical beauty. Sometimes a simple practice piece can result in something quite lovely. Some days I wish I had horns!” 🖤

2021 AIGA Student Portfolio Review

Annual Student Portfolio Review

From AIGA SLCC:

AIGA Salt Lake City’s annual Student Portfolio Review was held on Saturday, April 17, 2021. The event was shown online for a second year due to Covid!

This was an opportunity to gain valuable advice, insight, and industry information from some of the top creative professionals in our local design community.

The virtual keynote presentation was given by the innovative Mick Champayne.

_______

Speaker Bio

Mick Champayne is a designer by daylight and an illustrator by moonlight from Chicago. In a nutshell, she loves internet culture, navel-gazing about the future, and imagining how designers can support people’s values and intentions.

Currently an associate creative director at Instrument, she likes to create experiences that have beauty AND brains: making things look beautiful with smart strategy and a thoughtful user experience. From light-hearted memes to serious social commentary, she’s happiest when her work can spark a conversation.

For an almost-uncomfortable uptick of butt drawings in your feed, you can follow her on Instagram, or find her work at mickchampayne.com.
