Miguel Muniz, Chelsea Honnens and Robert Taylor all took home awards at the AIGI competition in Omaha.

A number of graphic design students from Southeast Community College recently received awards at a statewide competition.

The American Institute of Graphic Arts Nebraska Show was held Saturday, Nov. 12, at Kaneko in Omaha. Students from across the state competed in 15 different categories. Five of the winners were students and graduates of SCC’s Graphic Design/Media Arts program.

“I couldn’t be more proud of our students for branching out, getting involved in the community and having such an investment in their future careers,” said Elizabeth Vornbrock, program chair. “All of the awards won by the students are evidence of their hard work and dedication to design.”

Miguel Muniz received a Gold Award for Promotional Design & Advertising. Silver Award-winners were Chelsea Honnens and Robert Taylor for Logo & Identity System and Miguel Muniz for Book Design. Honnens also received a Bronze Award for Book Design.

Honnens and Taylor are recent SCC graduates. Muniz is a current GD/MA student.

Judges were Jennet Law, Nike designer; Joel Beukelman, Google designer and Ken Deegan, Pentagram designer.

“Events such as these are an excellent time for students to get engaged with the local design community and see how their work stacks up against their future competition,” Vornbrock said.

SCC’s Graphic Design/Media Arts program is located at Education Square in downtown Lincoln.
