The 50th annual Graphic Design Juried Student Show is currently open to the public at Auburn’s Gogue Performing Arts Center, or GPAC.

Graphic design students from the School of Industrial and Graphic Design each submitted up to five pieces for the show, and a committee of faculty members then narrowed them down to the 75 best pieces of work. This year’s juror was Elise Thomason, a designer and commercial illustrator who graduated from Auburn’s graphic design program in 2000.

Thomason is an accomplished designer who has worked with global brands including Coca-Cola, the U.S. Virgin Islands and André 3000 of OutKast. Her work has been featured on the covers of Communication Arts Magazine and Auburn Alumni Magazine, and two of her posters for the Torino 2006 Olympic Winter Games are in the permanent collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum.

She awarded prizes in 10 different categories, including interactive design, typography, package design and illustration, as well as Best of Show.

Members of the public may view the show in the GPAC lobby Tuesdays through Fridays from 1-4 p.m. through Friday, April 16, and anyone unable to visit the display can access an online photo gallery of the show here.
