Students in the new to-be-named design center/agency course in the School of Design taught by business communication professor Stephanie Verni this semester and assisted by art faculty member Inna Alesina are working hard at branding and innovating for their client, the Eastern Communication Association. The students are helping to create plans for the association's annual convention in April, 2018.
Above is a sample of what they produced during their brainstorming session as they shared ideas for the convention's themes, designs, and events.
Stevenson business communication professor Leeanne Bell McManus is the first vice president of the ECA charged with organizing the five-day event, so she is working with Verni and the students in developing a creative and consistent vision for the convention.

Business Communication alum Julia Cooke reached out to us recently to let us know where she is on her career path. She writes,
In the photo, Julia is on the left during her internship experience at ADashmore Creative. Congratulations, Julia!
The Villager staff, many of whom are Business Communication majors, took a moment to recreate a photo from 1961 sent to them by Allison Humphries, director of alumni and constituent relations, from archival material. Today's Villager staff, working within the online site, has come a long way from the news staff of The Villalog, as the newspaper was called then.
