Appalachian State student tells stories and sells products
I'm proud when students do great work in my classes. Last semester, Charlie Francis was part of my Professional Ethics in Advertising course. Some might pause here to recall personal/anecdotal memories of ethics and the ad industry. But on this day, it's clear our current student population is committed to do the right things, for the right reasons.
Charlie is also one of our top graphic creative students in the Appalachian State University advertising communication major. Now, his work will be promoted externally to the potential job market. Charlie won top prize in the annual Printing Industries of the Carolinas (PICA) collegiate division. He created a promotional brochure for Maryland tourism (he's from Annapolis) for a Graphic Arts and Imaging Technology (GAIT) course.
Charlie will be recognized at the annual PICA banquet in April and will receive a $500 check to use toward his studies. It's good for Charlie to gain accolades at the banquet, but it's important that he receive a few shout outs from the professional community, too.
Charlie, great work. We're looking forward to seeing your designs come alive for future employers and clients.
