SF Announces 2024 Student Exhibition for Graphic Design

SF Announces 2024 Student Exhibition for Graphic Design

April 19, 2024 – The annual Santa Fe College Graphic Design Student Exhibition event, presented by SCAD Media, will be held Thursday, May 2, at 6 p.m. on the third floor of Building N on SF’s Northwest Campus. SF’s Fine Arts and Entertainment Technology department will host both the exhibition opening and the awards ceremony. Live music will be provided by Rayvon Purple Kloud Rollins.

This will be an evening of creativity where the work of our graphic design graduates is presented on multiple media displays. There will be themed photo areas, and let’s not forget the interactive chalk walls! The 2024 Student Exhibition is not only a send-off for our 2024 grads, but also a full-on celebration of the graphic design creative community here in Gainesville and surrounding areas.

“Last year there was so much joy that filled the rooms during this event,” Professor Shawna Mansfield said. “I cannot wait to have that happen again!”

A Showcase of Creativity

Submitted work for this juried exhibition is designed by graphic design students in the areas of communication design, advertising design and digital media. We are pleased to announce our judges for this year are alum Madeline Maguire, Creative Director for General Motors (Oakland, CA), Jeffrey Stevens, Assistant Director at UF Health Web Services – Content and Social Strategy (Gainesville, FL) and Madeline Dominguez, Founder and Design Director of Mariana Dominguez | Design Studio (Barcelona, Spain). 

The graduate’s portfolios of work will also be reviewed by professionals from the University of North Florida, Mastercard, Tam Cai Studio, James Moore & Co., General Electric Credit Union, PHOS Creative, University of Texas at Arlington, SCAD Media, and Southwest Gas Corporation.

Innovation Culture

As one of the top graphic design programs in the region, SF’s Graphic Design Technology program is known for its innovative approach to teaching and learning. The program provides students with the skills and knowledge they need to be successful in the field of graphic design.

SF is thankful for the community of sponsors who continue to support the students. Sponsors this year include our platinum event sponsor SCAD Media, gold sponsor Frankel Agency, and silver sponsors Renaissance Printing, Gainesville Fine Arts Association, and Jade.
