Lasell Graphic Design Student Wins Poster Design Contest at Boston Gallery

November 14, 2014

Lasell graphic design student Brayden Daigneault ‘16 has won the 4th Annual Grand Circle Gallery Travel Poster Design Contest with a vintage design highlighting Japan's cultural treasures. The honor comes with a $1,000 prize.

"We were very determined to win this year, after placing so many students in the show last year," said Graphic Design Chair and Professor Kenneth Calhoun.

According to Calhoun, Professor Kirsten Sims assigned students in her Graphic Design II class a travel poster project, providing the students art direction and requesting feedback from other graphic design professors.

"We were extremely pleased and impressed with the results. Fortunately, the judges of the contest felt the same way," said Calhoun of the designs.

The gallery, a creation of Grand Circle Travel, is located in Boston and displays vintage travel posters and travel photography.

The honor is the second area design contest win in two years for graphic design students at Lasell. Last winter, Lasell student Hayley Boyle was one of the winners of the Design Museum of Boston's environmental poster contest.

A reception to honor this year's Grand Circle winners will be held December 9 at Grand Circle Gallery and is open to students and faculty. For more information contact info@grandcirclegallery.org
