{news} Students Recognized as Best of the Best 2014

chipkidcoverTwo students from PrattMWP were  identified as best art and design students in the land representing top institutions. Congratulations to Stacy Kamin and Adolfo Gutierrez who were among the 25 students featured in GDUSA’s 51st Anniversary People To Watch magazine.

Since 1963 Graphic Design USA has been the news magazine for graphic designers and other creative professionals.

For the last several years, choosing the students to watch from my school has been tasked to me. Due to the timing of the issue, it is too early in the academic year for me to choose a current student. Therefore, I base my decision on the previous class and how the students have expanded on the foundation built in Utica. The choice is extremely difficult, as I work with so many creative and talented students—so I’m posting my criteria here for next year’s class to be aware of.


  1. Continued progress and online presence such as a website or behance portfolio with updated work.
  2. Maintain a continued connection to me via social media and {meetinghouse}
  3. Current work should focus on graphic design and typography. I am considering changing this for next year to be more open to illustration and advertising—let me know what you think.

Congratulations to Stacy and Adolfo!
