The ones I had were prototypes, but now apparently my company finally went into production with them. So if you want some, you can buy them from this site… https://www.americancrafts.com/p…/dayofdead-foam-sticke-kit/ I’m going to order a ton because I like them way more than carving pumpkins.”

This is what I came up with and the client loved it.”

“Congratulations Everyone! And kudos to Virag White for being the SLCC Visual Art & Design Department Advisor.”
“Charts and Graphs for work! And all I hear in my head is Kerry saying ‘more charts and graphs’ during Ad Workshop class.”
“Lettering is such a beautiful way to express yourself. Exploring the depths of your style, creativity and voice is something I think every person can benefit from. I crack up when I see my work from a few years ago. There were times when I thought I’d just find a new hobby and others when I felt I’d really created something special and both experiences always pushed me to evolve and do better. I’m so grateful for the art of lettering and for the career that I’ve built from it. One of the unexpected benefits I’ve gotten from lettering is the wonderful community. Everyone is so positive and encouraging and I’m endlessly inspired by their beautiful work. It is for that reason that I would love to enter @homsweethom ‘s #letterwest scholarship challenge. I know there will be a ton of incredible entries but I figured I’d give it a shot! Here’s hoping I get to spend some quality time with my fellow lettering folk!” ❤️❤️
“Holy smokes, first mural done! And have a leg up on the next two thanks to help from my amaze sisters! Thanks @missyhealyturner and @libbykleyn 😇😇 for staying up late with me!”
“I could flower-doodle absolutely all day. Or all night in this case.” #6hourslater #hallofbreakfast @ Hall of Breakfast

“Great night at Monster Drawing Rally at Kimball Art Center with Park City Summit County Arts Council. Fun to participate as one of the artists and have our work go to great causes! Artwork was hung in plastic and taped to the wall for people to buy.”
“The Helikon Gallery & Studios Nerd Out! show opens today! We have a couple of plaques and a bunch of jewelry in the show so be sure to swing by if you’re in Denver.”

“This is a corresponding surface pattern to my cover photo. I’m planning on doing several more mostly because I feel like I’ve hit on a color palette I really like.”

“Had my senior BFA thesis show tonight! I’m so proud of my fellow design graduates for collaborating on our contribution!

“I finally did it! 5 years later and you’re looking at a BFA grad in Graphic Design! Even better is that on Monday, I start my first full-time career as a designer. Thank you to all my friends and family that supported me through school and pushed me to do the best I could!”

AIGA Salt Lake City’s Student Portfolio Review is always a great event for students to gain advice, insight and industry information from SLC professional designers as well as design and illustration faculty from Utah colleges.
SLCC Visual Art & Design Department Associate Professor Kerry Gonzáles and Assistant Professor Virag White, both in the Graphic Design specialization, joined their advanced students at this year’s event. Both said they were very proud of the six VAD Graphic Design students who showed their portfolios and were reviewed by creative directors and faculty from other institutions.
