Robert Finkel and his team of graphic designers received a Gold Award from the University and College Designers Association, or UCDA, Design Competition for the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art Third Thursday’s Poetry Letterpress Broadsides Series (2015-16 season). Out of 1,100 entries, 187 received awards and only six were awarded a Gold Award. The broadsides were exhibited at the UCDA Design Conference in San Antonio in September. The UCDA Design Competition recognizes the best of the exceptional design work done to promote educational institutions (secondary, vocation or higher education) and supports the exchange of ideas and information relating to the unique role of these designers. Finkel, an assistant professor in the School of Industrial and Graphic Design, was art director for the project that included graphic design faculty from the School of Industrial and Graphic Design. The team included Kelly Bryant; Samantha Herbert; Courtney Windham; College of Architecture, Design and Construction graphic designer Marcelo Blanco; and graphic design alumna Courtney Collins Wales.
