Leading Graphic Design Journal Recognizes Work by Rutgers-Camden Undergrad

For Immediate Release

CAMDEN Pennsauken resident Emily Lash, an undergraduate at Rutgers UniversityCamden, has been recognized in a major graphic design journal for her original artwork.

Lashs re-envisioning of three cover designs for works by the Marquis de Sade earned her honors as the winning artist of the editorial category in the student award issue of Canadas most prominent graphic design journal, Applied Arts.

I wanted to design something that would appeal to modern aesthetics, something simple and direct, using a single image as an allegory for each storys theme, says Lash, a 2002 graduate of Pennsauken High School.

The Rutgers-Camden senior graphic design and photography major designed the series for her Communications Design I class taught by Allan Espiritu, an assistant professor of fine arts at Rutgers-Camden.

The Rutgers-Camden graphic design program emphasizes the development of original conceptual ideas as they relate to graphic images including logos or trademarks; advertising; editorial page illustrations; magazine layouts; and packaging.
