Several people have admired the “senior banners” that we display during each design show. Some have inquired who we have contracted for the banners, and for the last few years it has been SASS GRAPHIX in Salem, Wisconsin.
SASS also happens to be run by former GTC graphic communications student Paula Sass.
This year’s Student Design Show promotional materials were voted upon and selected by faculty and staff from close to fifteen submissions. Elkhorn Campus Student Nancy DuPont created the promotional look for the show. Nancy’s designs will be utilized on: postcards, posters, and other promotional materials for the 2014 show run.
Welcome to the Gateway Technical College Graphic Communications Site. This is your communications central for all things related to the department: the annual student design show, and information about GTC’s Graphic Communications Program for Students.
Award from the 2002 Design Show on the Kenosha Campus...
The very first Student Design Show to exhibit the work of students from all three campus locations was held in Kenosha in the Madigano Theater Commons in 1999. Prior to that, smaller shows had been held locally at each campus, and later each region.
Its hard to believe that we are on our 16th year of the district-wide combined show, and our 18th year overall! The show originally rotated among each of the three main campuses (Kenosha, Racine, and Elkhorn) annually. We now rotate at locations between the two campus regions offering the Graphic Communications Program, and are excited to be holding the show at a brand new venue this year (the S.C. Johnson iMET center in Sturtevant). We also have a touring show component that visits additional venues.
Since 2007 we have maintained a show presence on the web (we have documentation of some of the more recent shows–2010 onward–in the main menu).
This year’s STUDENT DESIGN SHOW will be held at a new venue: the S.C. Johnson iMET Center in Sturtevant, Wisconsin. Conveniently located east of Interstate 94 between Highways 11 and 20, the center is conveniently located between the various student populations.
The facilities home for Gateway Technical College’s Engineering Programs, Development Incubators, Manufacturing Technologies, and 3d Printing/Fabrications Labs, the S.C. Johnson iMET center is yet another of Gateway Technical College’s state of the art showcase pieces.
