Four graphic design students in the advanced Career and Technical Education (CTE) Graphic Design cohort and a panel of three outside judges participated in a branding and advertising design review in late November at Glen Oaks Community College. The basis of the review was a fictitious company developed by each student with their corresponding logo design, print materials, design spec sheets and website homepage mock-ups. They presented their work during a “shark tank” like event. Many students commented that it was a stressful, yet beneficial experience for them moving forward into higher education and future careers.
