A+D Graphic Design Senior Wins Manifest Creative Director Position
Thumy's winning design can be viewed here.
From her design entry:
"My concept explores the possibility of layering not only text and illustration, but photography as well. We, as human beings, do more than just live. We learn, we love, and we create. We are made up of different layers. The creative layer, the fun layer, the serious layer. Everybody has different layers that when combined together makes them who they are. I would not be Thumy if I weren’t an artist, an activist, multiracial, a coffee addict, and a volleyball player. There are so many little things that make up each and every one of us and this is how I perceive Chicago and Columbia College Chicago. Columbia is so diverse because of all the different students, with all their different layers, who have had different experiences, seen different things, and have been to different places. The art and design, fashion, film, journalism, photography students, etc. all bring that special experience to Columbia, creating this environment with an energy unlike any other college and city. Chicago and Columbia wouldn’t be as vibrant, as fun, and as energetic, without this diverse group of students. The 3 elements, photography, text, and illustration can be serious or fun. Chicago's 4 seasons also tie in as well. 4 seasons, 4 layers. The layering possibilities are limitless!"
