Graphic Design Students Show How They Meet Communications Challenges

Exhibit features the vision of artists from the Class of 2016

The Suffolk Art Gallery presents an exhibit featuring students from the class of 2016 in the bachelor of fine arts and certificate graphic design programs at Suffolk University’s New England School of Art & Design.

The exhibit runs through April 21 at the second-floor gallery in the Art & Design Department at 75 Arlington St., Boston. A reception with the artists will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 15.

The theme of the exhibit is "Breaking the F#%*ing Grid" and demonstrates how students are pushed to think more outside the box and express their individual visions.

The work demonstrates how the graphic design students have broken through things that could limit them as designers, such as time, computers, software, and the rules.

“If you're going to be a practicing graphic designer in this day and age, you have to be multidisciplinary, willing to work in a team and across platforms,” wrote Graphic Design Program Director Laura Golly in describing the show. “I seek to prepare graphic designers to meet the communications challenges of today and tomorrow through practical projects that challenge students to design conceptually strong solutions that communicate eloquently and solve client problems.”

The exhibit presents the graphic design work of:
