All posts by INK

INK is an online source for students interested in Graphic Design started by two talented Salt Lake Community College Visual Art & Design alumni, Casey Kim and Nadya Bratt. INK is now totally supported by volunteer Visual Art & Design Graphic Design students and alumni. We strive to help members get off on the right foot in their design and art careers. INK encourages creative and professional growth by providing access to job information, resources, advice, critiques, portfolio reviews, activities and 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 mentor for INK and will continue to work with current and alumni VAD Graphic Design students to promote and support this group. Bryan Holbrook, SLCC VAD Graphic Design student, is the current site manager and all around go to guy! INK supports student and professional membership in AIGA (national) as well as AIGA/SLC. Founded in 1914 as the American Institute of Graphic Arts, AIGA remains the oldest and largest professional membership organization for design and is now known simply as “AIGA, the professional association for design.” INK membership is free. https://inkslcc.wordpress.com/

From Craft Lake City:

“The Craft Lake City DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Festival was formed in 2009 by Angela H. Brown, editor and publisher of SLUG Magazine (Salt Lake UnderGround), as a way to showcase local DIY (do it yourself) culture.

Since then, Craft Lake City has expanded the DIY Festival to become the state’s largest, local-centric, two-day arts festival, with over 200 local artisans, a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Building, two stages for musical and dance performances, local food vendors, food trucks and hosting over 40,000 festival attendees.

Furthermore, the organization seeks to enhance Utah’s DIY arts culture by broadening the definition of “craft”  to encompass all things handmade – including craft food, STEM and DIY engineers (electronic makers).”
