CWU Graphic Design Seniors Host Portfolio Exhibition


Twenty-four Central Washington University graphic design seniors will put their design portfolios on public display during the 2019 Graphic Design BFA Show, which begins on May 28.

The exhibition, which will remain on view through June 8, kicks off with an opening reception from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Gallery 231 in Randall Hall on the CWU campus.

The exhibition showcases students’ best work from art and design courses taken during their tenure at CWU for the past two-to-four years. The senior portfolios feature projects such as logo and identity design, branding systems, typography, publication and poster design, packaging design, illustration, as well as graphic interface and user experience design.


“This is an incredibly talented, focused, and driven group of graphic design students,” noted David Bieloh, Associate Professor of Graphic Design. “Their final portfolios represent a culmination of many hours of dedication and hard work. I look forward to seeing what each of these students will do as they move forward as professional designers.”


The senior graphic design students included in this exhibit include Payton Agnew, Rio Allen, Sabrina Allen, Arleth Ascencion, Lia Butterfield, Shane Crowell, Tianbai Dun, Ryan Edwards, Uriel Espino, Brenda Garcia, Isabelle Grotting, Kaitlyn Kurisu, Olivia Lane, Emily-Jo Mancinelli, Shane Martin, Hailey McGraw, Joe Petrick, Ariana Rodarte, Amanda Smith, Lauren Spear, Monique Stallworth, Kendra Taylor, Alexa Tymecki, and Lisa Yamakawa.
