Business Communication senior Abigail Provost interned during the summer of 2017 at Discovery Communications, where she participated in a contest to redesign the logo that would be used to represent the internship program there. Collaborating with a colleague in the print center at Discovery, Abbey created the award-winning design shown here, among others. It will be featured on all Discovery internship materials in the future. "I felt it was a great use of my VCD classes as well as what I learned in my Advertising and PR classes," said Abbey. Congratulations, Abbey, for your terrific creation. Your department is so proud of you!
