BGSU team wins design award for Toledo project

BGSU faculty and alumni have helped put Toledo "on the map" as it were, and the public can read about their International Design Award-winning efforts in the March issue of HOW magazine.

The "You Are Here" project, sponsored by the Arts Commission of Greater Toledo, was among 20 Outstanding Achievement Award winners in the competition hosted by HOW magazine. Of nearly 1,000 submissions, 242 were accepted and only 20 overall were recognized as "Outstanding."

The AIGA (the professional association for design) Toledo team was led by School of Art graphic design faculty member Jenn Stucker, the creative director and project manager. The Creative Production Team included graphic design instructor Amy Fidler (who is also a BGSU alumna) and alumni artists Ben Morales and Zach Zollar, along with fellow designer Matt Rowland.

Their challenge was to enhance awareness about Toledo and create a stronger sense of place, both for visitors to the city during last summer's International Glass Arts Society conference and also for Toledo residents. In the process they employed not only graphic design but also mobile technology and a "collect the dots" contest for participants.

On the set of "Fish Tank"

First student film to premiere at Wolfe Center for the Arts

It was his first course at the University as a freshman: Introduction to Sociology Honors, 11 a.m. on Mondays. In that class, Ethan Roberts learned the basics of the social sciences - theories, case studies and experiments. He also almost accidentally discovered the theme of his senior year Honors Project and Independent Study.

His freshman sociology class taught him about how society ostracizes and punishes those members who don't fit into the status quo. "That was the seed. That was my thematic idea: alienation as social punishment. And everything sort of blossomed from there," Roberts said.

The 22-year-old from Bryan, Ohio, is a senior majoring in film production with a minor in arts management. At 8 p.m. tonight (April 25), his short film "Fish Tank," his Honors Project and Independent Study, will be the first student film to premiere in the Donnell Theatre at the Wolfe Center for the Arts.
