Help Fund our Graphic Design Senior Exhibition!

Who we are ( A bunch of college kids who might design the next Nike logo ) 

We are the Boise State Graphic Design Senior class of 2020!

 As a group that has been together since the start, we're getting ready for our send-off into life after college. 

Prior to our graduation, we are hosting a showcase to present our portfolios to business professionals, friends, & family. In order to ensure all 14 of us get the best experience possible out of our showcase, it's crucial we are able to fund all the fun things we have planned for the exciting night to remember. 

Art and design play a much more important role in the world than many people think. Making sure that students are exposed to the importance of art and are supportive of those pursuing artistic careers is important for creating a more understanding world. Those students that are studying art have the potential to change the way society thinks and acts through powerful design, and sharing their work with the world.

 

What our event is ( basically one giant interview )

Our event is a showcase to show off our portfolios and get our names out there to network with business professionals. It will take place May 7, 2020 at the Adelmann building in downtown Boise. Everyone in the Boise community is more than welcome to attend, and we encourage you to come and see how you've been able to help us create an amazing showcase with your donation! 

 

How your money will help us ( help us throw an impressive art show )

Our goal of this campaign is to raise enough funds to have a guest speaker, afford our venue expenses, and afford promotional items to advertise the showcase. We are planning on bringing the well known Graphic Designer, Jeremy Mickel to Boise from Los Angeles to host a public talk the night of our event. Without your help, it won't be possible to cover Jeremy's travels for him to come give an inspirational talk. In order for our event to be successful, it is crucial we are able to advertise the event as much as possible around campus and the city of Boise. With your help, we can fund printing costs for promotional items which will include things like posters, coasters, stickers, postcards and more fun things!

We are asking you to help us host the best night possible and make it a showcase to remember. With your help, we will be able to fund all the experiences possible to send us off into the professional world inspired, comfortable talking about our work, and excited for what the future holds for us.
