  • Graphic Art and Design Community Service Project

    Graphic Art and Design AM Class

    For this years service project, the Graphic Art & Design classes were tasked with creating a logo for a charity music festival. The morning and afternoon sessions split up into eleven teams of four students each. Each student created a logo design which the team then presented to the client. In this case the client was AAESA Public Information Coordinator Tom Scheidel. Jake’s Music Festival is a charity event in Grand Rapids that Mr. Scheidel has been organizing for the past 13 years. The event has never had a logo before and this presented an excellent opportunity for the Graphic Arts students.

    After the initial concepts were created, each team showed their designs in a “pitch session” to Mr. Scheidel. He gave feedback on each design and then told the teams which design they should develop going into the second round. The teams revised their selected designs and then presented their final work to Mr. Scheidel. The top designs were then shared with the music festival’s organizing committee and final winner was named. Nicole Kutscher of Allegan High School created the winning design. “I was very impressed by the quality of the work done by the students,” said Mr. Scheidel. “Everyone I’ve shown the winning design to has commented about how cool it looks.” Jake’s Music Festival takes place on April 22, 2017 at the Orbit Room in Grand Rapids.
