Four Berks Career and Technology Center students were chosen by a jury of professional graphic designers to display their work at Cabrini College’s Art + Effect poster exhibition in November. The students whose work was chosen for exhibition are:

Eight students in the class were tasked with creating an 18” x 24” poster with the theme of “equality.” Students used a combination of Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator to create a striking message communicating a personal meaning of equality. Cabrini received 59 entries and jurors chose 20 posters for the exhibition, which runs from Nov. 19 through 27 in the Grace Hall Atrium at Cabrini College in Radnor.

“Equality is a huge topic for today’s students and I knew the theme would result in some powerful artwork. I am thrilled for and proud of all the students who participated in this contest,” says instructor Beth Ireland.

Entries were judged on originality, craftsmanship and thematic message. Successful poster designs integrated both type and image to impose a unique message.
