INK – A Graphic Design Connection
INK is an online source for Graphic Design students and professionals started in 2010 by two talented Salt Lake Community College Visual Art & Design alumni, Casey Kim and Nadya Bratt.
INK is now totally supported by volunteer SLCC Visual Art & Design Graphic Design students and alumni & friends. We strive to help aspiring graphic designers get off on the right foot in their design and art careers. INK encourages creative and professional growth by providing access to job information, design news, scholarships, resources, advice, critiques, portfolio reviews and activities in an environment to create genuine connections with other visual art students and creative professionals.
Kerry Gonzales, Associate Professor & Graphic Design Specialization Representative at Salt Lake Community College is the caretaker for INK and will continue to work with current and alumni VAD Graphic Design students to promote and support this endeavor.
Julianie McCray, SLCC VAD Graphic Design student, is the 2015 – 2016 site manager.
We invite everyone to follow INK!

BAD DESIGN DESTROYS CONTEST
From Tenfold Creative / Colorado
“The Tenfold Collective is taking a fight against the ugliness with a Bad Design Destroys campaign. As part of this campaign they are having a (temporary) tattoo competition. It’s simple really, snap a pic of you with the tattoo, and win cool stuff… hopefully.”
In response to the contest, Alumnus Peterson Timothy sent photos and this letter:
“Upon reading about the contest, fellow design students signed up for their newsletter and sent for their free temporary tattoos. That was the easy part. Now the hard part was coming up with a clever way to use the tattoo and spread the message.
So in typical college student fashion, we waited ’till the day before to do anything about it. We compiled all our tattoos, a sticker here and there, and a few posters to top it all off. With a note to the Tenfold Collective: Pick us please!”
AND WE WON!
Kerry and her students – Casey, Nadya, Sara, Danielle, Jordan and Peterson – received a huge box load of beautiful t-shirts, posters, decals and tattoos.
Our sincere appreciation for the talent, skill and ENTHUSIASM of these founding members and INK site managers!
