MIAD students are not average students; they are creative professionals, using their creative talents in the Milwaukee community.
For the sixth consecutive year illustration students in associate professor Christiane Grauert’s Illustration IV class collaborated with Cramer-Krasselt, a major national advertising agency, creating a series of posters for the 20th Annual Croquet Ball at Penfield Children’s Center.
Throughout the design process, Cramer-Krasselt acts as art director for the students, helping them utilize their skills to create the finished product.
Some students took inspiration from their past when creating the designs, “When I was designing posters for Penfield, I looked toward my childhood for inspiration. It wasn’t based on a moment or place, but rather a feeling of admiration and wonder for the world around us,” said Catelin Tindall ’16 (Illustration).
Sage Kossman ’16 (Illustration) added, “The entire time I knew I wanted to address the more whimsical idea of childhood, and the idea that Penfield was a larger being, helping the small (children), through croquet.”
The top three designs were auctioned during the black-tie ball to benefit Penfield Children’s Center. Jasmon Grant’s ’16 (Illustration) design came in first, Tindall received second place and Kossman received third.
