DESIGN STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN "IMMERSIONS"


10/25/2004

Pittsburgh, PA – Students in La Roche College’s highly acclaimed graphic and communication design program offered their services to a Pittsburgh area organization that is helping families impacted by September’s flooding in the region. Those students put their creative skills to the “real-world” test with the annual Immersion Days project. On Tuesday, October 26, teams of students were given 48 hours to design a brochure, posters and mailers for North Hills Community Outreach (NHCO) of Allison Park. On Thursday, October 28, La Roche design faculty and representatives from NHCO judged the students’ work and selected potential materials for the group’s use.

“This was a unique challenge for our students. They were charged with preparing and updating a number of communications vehicles for a group that is performing a vital service in the face of devastation,” said Rosemary Gould, M.F.A., chair of the Department of Graphic and Communication Design.

The Immersion Days presentation took place on Thursday, October 28 in the Kearns Spirituality Center. Previous clients for this annual project include: Best Buddies, an organization that pairs college students with peers suffering from physical or mental disabilities; the Pittsburgh Research Laboratory of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health; and Pittsburgh’s Next, an area networking group whose mission is to stem the tide of Pittsburgh’s brain drain.
