Web Design Students Present Work to Art Students

Web design students participated in a collaborative presentation at a college in Corsicana earlier this month, blending web design student work with other art work at Navarro College.

The exhibit offered students a chance to present their work to the audience and mingle with other types of designer. Using grand style, these student were given an opportunity to fully explain their work – something professional graphic designers rarely get to do.

Corsicana — The Navarro College Multimedia department presented its annual Media Fest at the Cook Center Planetarium on Thursday. It was a chance for the public to enjoy the products of hard work and long hours put in by the multimedia students during the past year.

Projects displayed included graphic design, web design, traditional and 3D animation, audio, video, and interactive presentations as well as traditional media drawing and paintings.

The show was opened by Navarro College students Chris Ray and Tyler Price who played guitars and sang as guests settled in.

Organization and narration was provided by Program Coordinator Mark Rosenberg.

An overhead display of a computer desktop was projected on the ceiling of the planetarium and each student had a folder showcasing their work. Group projects were included as well as projects done outside the classroom.

He also pointed out what potential employers may be looking for.

Individual student awards were presented for the first time this year. The Student of the Year award went to Ryan Lunt for positive attitude and dedicated service in helping others. The Red Beret Award winner for excellence in the art drawing was presented to Ana Flores and the Outstanding Achievement award for dedication and hard work went to Carlton Walton.
