NIC graphic design students to exhibit logo designs at Human Rights Education Institute grand opening
The work of North Idaho College graphic design students will be exhibited during the grand opening celebration of the Human Rights Education Institute at 11 a.m. on International Human Rights Day Saturday, Dec. 10.
At the request of leaders of the Human Rights Education Institute, a total of 16 students in a second-level graphic design class designed logos for the institute based on the needs and identity of the organization.
“In partnerships like this, it’s a win-win,” said NIC Graphic Design Instructor Philippe Valle. “The institute gains a graphic identity and our students gain real-world experience on a graphic design project.”
Each students’ logo design will be on display in the institute, located at 414 Mullan Ave. in Coeur d’Alene. The Human Rights Education Institute’s board is hoping to gain the community’s input on the logos prior to the graphic design students’ formal presentation to the board Dec. 15.
Graphic design students whose work will be displayed include Aaron Barton of Coeur d’Alene, Jessica Becker of Clark Fork, Scott Bjorkman of Coeur d’Alene, Joshua Callihan of Post Falls, Carmen Dawson of Hayden, Jack Knecht of Princeton, Susan Lam of Coeur d’Alene, Robert Loeffler of Coeur d’Alene, Lisa Malin of Hayden, Garrett McDonald of Hayden Lake, Jamie Murphy of Post Falls, Shelly Page of Dalton Gardens, Julie Peterson of Hauser, Chad Severtson of Coeur d’Alene, Chun Tse of Coeur d’Alene and Davis Yefremova of Coeur d’Alene.
In addition, NIC’s graphic design program will display its human rights art exhibit, which was created in 2003 by students in a level-three illustration class, at the Human Rights Education Institute’s grand opening. The exhibit includes light box displays created with computer-generated elements on internally lit boxes donated by Honeywell Electronic Materials.
Another NIC department contributing to the Human Rights Education Institute’s grand opening is the NIC Welding Technology program, a professional-technical program at NIC.
Students in the welding program helped create a metal sculpture that is held up by brick pillars, forming an archway at the entrance of the institute. The piece was designed and created by NIC welding students. It will be on permanent display outside the Human Rights Education Institute.For More Information
