Meet our Fall 2017 jurors!

Each semester, Ivy Tech’s Visual Communication Department invites professional creatives to critique student work. Students must present their work as they would to a real world client or employer. In doing so, students not only gain the experience of presenting in front of a group (the judges as well as their peers), they gain the insight provided by those who are working every day in the field of design. Meet this falls jurors!
