'REVOLUTIONARY' concepts in art and design
Nine graduating seniors — including four graphic designers, three photographers and two fine artists — participated in the Senior Art and Photography Exhibition on display at the Andy Gato Gallery from April 29 to Sept. 16. Among the featured photographers was Julia Lethbridge, whose work consisted of images of "nature pathways" that were shot with a Diana plastic film camera and hand printed. "I used a soft focus lens to achieve a dreamlike effect and included the sprocket holes and light leaks in the prints to highlight the imperfections of film that give the images their individuality," Lethbridge said.
Graphic designer Mark Kilpatrick created a contemporary product and marketing concept with REVOLUTION, a vodka-infused wine intended to reach young adults. The wine is bottled inside a W5 Bordeaux 750 ml, with a synthetic cork and a two-color, screen-printed paperless label. "The wine label, logo and bottle design are all-important aspects in reaching the target market, and when combined create a shelf personality that stands above the rest," said Kilpatrick, who operates his own company, Mark Ryan Design, in Bay Harbor Island, Fla. Kilpatrick's wine bottle design was photographed by George Martinez, who is working toward his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
