SLCC STUDENT SPEAKER SHOWCASE • LAYOUT DESIGN
Over the last two years I was engaged to design a posters, programs and other ephemera for the Salt Lake Community College Communications Department Student Speaker Showcase. The Student Speaker Showcase is the pinnacle event for the Communications Department each semester. Students are selected are selected by their peers to compete for a chance to speak at the event from among each semester's Public Speaking classes. The showcase is the final round of the competition done in front of an audience. The participating students receive prizes based on their ranking and the level they achieve during the competition. The Salt Lake Community College Communications Department requested the project reflect the class and importance of the event while still maintaining a modern feel that would appeal to the broadly younger demographic of students they wish to attend.
Each semester I take photographs at the event. I use these photos to come up with a concept and headline for the following semester. This has helped me to create a library of photographs of speakers to draw from and these have been used by the Communications Department to create other promotional materials.
