Graphic Arts Students Produce Charity Event T-Shirts
Graphic Arts & Imaging students produced T-shirts for the annual Lebanon High School Hoops for Hope again this year. The students who created the design and headed up the printing and quality control are juniors Jordan Neal, Springboro, and Gracie Hinkle, Waynesville, with assistance from Jeremiah Tankersly, Little Miami, and seniors Paige Sprowl, Franklin, and Vanessa Fisk, Franklin. Both classes printed 160 shirts for the event, which will be held Jan. 25. The event raises funds to fight cancer.
Jordan wants to study marketing in college, work in an advertising company, and then open his own business. He designed the logo using Adobe PhotoShop, InDesign and Illustrator and said he found a love of the arts through the Graphics program. He transferred into the program two months ago, and is taking practice tests now to pass his Adobe certifications. “I really like doing T-shirts,” he said. “It’s good to help with a charity, and it also adds to my portfolio.”
Gracie plans to go into a career in graphic design, and she said that volunteering for this project made her feel good to help with a good cause. She is working on earning certification in PhotoShop.
Jeremiah, in his first six months of the program, earned the title of Adobe Design Specialist with certifications in PhotoShop, Illustrator, and InDesign. He has a strong interest in Zoology, and plans to study at Ohio University after graduation. He also enjoys using his skills in graphic design and information technology.
