Graphic Design 2024, the annual student portfolio exhibition by graphic design seniors at Pennsylvania College of Technology, runs April 24 through May 3 in The Gallery at Penn College. The exhibition’s poster was designed by graphic design senior Destiny N. Walter, of Middleburg.

“The Graphic Design Student Portfolio Exhibition represents the culmination of four years of dedicated study and unwavering passion in the graphic design field,” said Brian A. Flynn, assistant professor of graphic design and department head. “This showcase illuminates the creative journey of eight exceptional graduating design students, poised to become the future innovators in graphic design. I am excited to see the unfolding of their promising career paths.”

Participating students are John P. Greenwald, of Manheim; Brock R. Hower, of Montoursville; Megan N. Kline, of Muncy; Ally N. Moore, of Jersey Shore; Hunter S. Rowley, of Millersville; Joseph E. Thompson, of Williamsport; Destiny N. Walter, of Middleburg; and Duncan C. Wentzel, of Huntingdon.

All have petitioned to graduate in May 2024 with their Bachelor of Science degrees in graphic design. Rowley previously earned an associate degree in advertising art.

The annual student exhibition displays the best design, illustration and web design work of graphic design majors in their final semester of study at Penn College. For the exhibition, design faculty select the top works developed by each student within their time at Penn College. The exhibition gives students a chance to present their work in marketing, branding, packaging, advertising and design to industry professionals and the community.

Penn College graphic design students have consistently earned recognition through their submissions to regional, national and international advertising design competitions, particularly in the student category of the American Advertising Federation’s American Advertising Awards and the American Institute of Graphic Arts’ Flux Student Design Competition.

The Gallery at Penn College began hosting the graphic design student portfolio exhibitions in 2008.

The gallery is open 2 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays; 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays; and 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays. (The gallery is closed on Mondays and Saturdays.)
