In our last post, we shared the new LIS logo, which serves as a visual identity for the Program, bringing together faculty, alumni, and current students, while also drawing in potential students at first glance. The final design was created by Graphic Design student Jana Sasaki under Professor Chae Ho Lee (photo from the Art Dept. faculty page, linked). However, we would also like to recognize all of the students for their hard work and final submissions and presentations this semester:

The design area at the University of Hawai‘i has been recognized internationally, nationally and locally for its excellence in graphic design. Design work from students and graduates have been exhibited internationally and nationally by the AIGA, The Type Director’s Club, The Art Director’s Club, Print magazine, and How magazine. Locally, students from the design area have repeatedly won awards from the Honolulu chapter of the AIGA and the Hawai‘i chapter of the American Advertising Federation. Students who have wished to work professionally have taken leadership roles in the graphic design and advertising community and have secured design positions locally and nationally at Walt Disney, Martha Stewart Omnimedia, MYV networks, and the Asia Society.
We will update everyone on implementation of the new logo in the coming months.
