Graphic Design Students Hail the 125th
October 24, 2016
As part of Drexel University’s 125th anniversary, two of our Graphic Design seniors created logos that will be used in the year’s upcoming events. The next time you visit the campus, be sure to look out for the bright blue banners on Chestnut and Market streets. Emily Charniga, with mentor Graphic Design Professor Mark Willie, created this special Drexel University 125th anniversary logo that will be used in a variety of manners throughout the academic year, on websites, backdrop banners, publications, commemorative merchandise, and in special celebrations of Drexel’s 1891 founding. Also, Drexel alumnus and founder of Flying Fish Brewing Co., Gene Muller, created a limited edition beer, Dragon’s Gold. Graphic Design student Nurul Rumlan created the special-edition label for the beer as part of her co-op at Drexel’s Office of Institutional Advancement.
Through brainstorms, client meetings and revisions, Charniga worked through nine months creating this design. “I am grateful to Drexel’s curriculum for giving me the ability to execute this project,” she said. “In classes, I’ve always been encouraged to think outside of the box and that motivated me to provide something that was very unique to Drexel.”
After creating two different labels, members of the Drexel community and Drexel alumni voted on their favorite on National Beer Day (April 7). “There’s nothing more exciting than seeing your design in the real world,” Rumlan said.
