BTEC 155 student Camila Spencer’s poster was selected as the new design for the Quiet Zone poster on the second floor of Cannell Library.
Camila’s design was chosen from nearly 30 submissions. Her design will be printed at 22″x34″ size and placed in vertical sign holders in the two main sections of the Quiet Zone. They will begin their display in Winter Quarter 2014.
Seven finalists were selected for properly complying with copyright guidelines and for creating a friendlier, more inviting sign than the yellow and black theme currently used in the Quiet Zone. Library staff voted on the final design. Many staff members were amazed by the quality of the finalists and were unable to select only one poster. They were even more impressed to learn that many of the students had taken their own photos and made their own illustrations to accompany the poster designs.
“I cannot use the Google Form to vote because I love all of the examples,” stated Technical Services librarian Radka Ballada during the secret voting process. “My suggestion would be to use all of them.”
This project was a professional collaboration set up by instructor Helen Martin of BTEC 155 and library staff. In a previous quarter, Professor Martin’s class designed fliers for the International Office. Although the students were creating the posters for extra credit, the quality well exceeded the library’s expectations.
Congratulations to Camila Spencer for your wonderful design and to all of the amazing finalists!
