HPU student tops national competition

by Kalamalama staff

 

Hawai‘i Pacific University communication students are beginning to make beating out the competition look easy. For the second consecutive year, an HPU student won top honors at the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC) national logo contest

Christine Longboy, a graduate student in the College of Communication, won both first and second place for her logo designs for the 2005 AEJMC Convention in San Antonio, Texas.

“ These awards will bring international recognition to our program,” said Dr. Helen Varner, dean of the College of Communication. “The design will be on every publication, and all of the conference materials that are sent to college and university professors in advertising, journalism, public relations, speech, and related disciplines by AEJMC this year.”

Longboy’s design will also be used on all AEJMC publications throughout the year and on conference materials related to the AEJMC’s upcoming event.

Creating an entry for the contest was a class project in Desktop Publishing, a course taught by Dr. Brian Cannon, assistant professor of communication. Explains Dr. Cannon, “The students needed to research what landmarks or characteristics would capture some flavor of the city the conference will be held in and convey that in their design. Part of the challenge is including the name of the agency and the date of the conference.”

Last year, Thanita Pakjamsai and Desiree Higa, graduate students in the College of Communication, won first and third place, respectively, for their logo designs for the 2004 AEJMC convention in Toronto, Canada.
