Five Students to Have Designs Featured at Library Learning Terrace
Five Drexel students were recognized at a reception on Tuesday, January 17th, for their designs which will be prominently featured on the fabric screens of the Hub at the Library Learning Terrace. The moveable signs are part of the furniture, designed by Herman Miller, and offer a flexible way to create privacy for consultations.
Designs from Lauren Poole, Soha Qadir, Gerre Mae Barcebal, Danielle Rowan and Seth Fowler, all sophomores in the Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts and Design, were selected from over 100 projects submitted by Typography I students.
A group of nearly 40 classmates, faculty members, staff and friends congratulated the students at the Typography Reception as Dr. Danuta A. Nitecki, dean of libraries, gave remarks, along with Westphal College's assistant professor Shushi Yoshinaga and Dean Allen Sabinson.
“You have to realize that these students are sophomore students in their first typography class,” Yoshinaga said at the event. “I was really proud of all of the students. They were eager and worked really hard and their results were really good.”
