Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) employee Sean Winter received a first place award at the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA) 2013 West Regional Conference. NACA is a recognized leader in higher education for providing members with innovative practices and access to programs that support campus engagement.
The win came as a surprise to Sean Winter, a third-year Graphic Design student, who has been a graphic designer for ASI’s marketing department, Gas Creative Group, for almost a year.
“I try not to take any of it too seriously or become too arrogant, but it is nice to win something,” Winter says.
Winter was recognized with first place in the Graphic Design Competition for Best Flyer/Poster at NACA’s annual conference held in Ontario, CA from Nov. 14-17. In addition to the award, Winter received a $35 Visa gift card.
This is the first award ASI has received from NACA.
The prize was awarded for the design he created for ASI’s Fall Comedy Kickoff event. The design was hand drawn digitally, meaning it was sketched, then scanned and drawn on a computer. It features an exaggerated open mouth expressing a “hearty laugh,” as Winter says.
