Stevenson Univerity’s Krystal Carpintieri won silver for the 2017 ADDY Awards.

The American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition. Its goal is to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising across all mediums. Krystal was the first student since 2011 to win an ADDY award.

Krystal’s design focused on an important topic, bees. They are one of the foundations of nature and life. How are we going to survive without nature? Increasing interest and awareness of the bee population will be great for humanity but when will we start caring? Will we wait until there are only a few bees left to live? It Is time that we stop ignoring and started caring. This is the moment Krystal realized that to make a difference she need to create an infographic on saving the Bees.

Visit Krystal’s Behance to learn more about her process including research, ideation, sketches and design.

Freelance photographer and collage artist Leneé Freeman, a 2011 Visual Communication Design graduate, is mid-way through her Urban Arts Leadership Program fellowship. The UALP is a Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance program that facilitates persons of color training in arts management, social justice, and professional development. This ten-month fellowship includes four months of intensive weekend training and six months working with Baltimore arts organizations.

Leneé’s arts administration placements are with Baltimore Clayworks and Single Carrot Theatre. Leneé’s Clayworks projects included photographing ceramics for a catalog and helping the organization promote its classes and events. Her role at Single Carrot Theatre includes event promotions and administrative support.

When asked how she has grown personally, professionally and creatively as a result of this fellowship, Leneé explains that her time management and still life photography skills have improved greatly. She has also gained insight into how organizations use social media platforms.

An activity that is included in the fellowship training is for all fellows to raise $500. for a personal art project. Leneé's Indegogo fundraising campaign is titled “Shades of Brown: diversity and inclusion.” This collage series was started by Leneé after she noticed that “other paper portrait artist didn't make paper people that I could relate to I began making my own. My mission was to create paper illustrations with diverse shades of brown and body images. They represent inclusion and to showcase dynamic fashions, lifestyles, and beauty among various shades of brown complexions in the African American community.” 

The Stevenson University community is encouraged to support this project. To learn more about this project click on this link. The first fellow to reach the campaign goal receives an additional $500.

Stevenson University seniors or recent grads are encouraged to apply for this fellowship. The application deadline is early May and the fellowship begins in September. Feel free to contact Lori Rubeling, lrubeling@stevenson.edu or go to GBCA’s web site, for more information on the UALP application.
