HAMMOND – The Southeastern Louisiana University Office of Public Information was recognized for graphic design at this month’s Southwest District conference of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) held in Little Rock, Ark.
The office was cited with a second place Silver Award for Excellence for the poster promoting the university’s performance of “The Wizard of Oz,” a musical staged by the university’s Opera/Music Theatre program last summer. The full color poster, designed by staff graphic designer Michael Trahan, included an original sketch of one of the key characters in the production, the “Wicked Witch of the West.”
Winning the top award in the illustration category was the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
