Tyler students among “Top Talent” recognized by Adobe Design Achievement Awards
Four Tyler School of Art and Architecture Graphic & Interactive Design BFA students and one Temple University Klein College of Media and Communication student were among the “Top Talent” recipients of the 2019 Adobe Design Achievement Awards—the world’s premier digital media competition for students and emerging creators.
This annual competition is a great opportunity to expose students to creative leaders, influencers and fellow designers, illustrators, thinkers and problem solvers. It also helps them deepen their understanding of what goes into building a career in the design field.
“The projects that our students submitted convey both their iterative process and strong visual solutions,” says Tyler Graphic & Interactive Design faculty Abby Guido, who worked with two of Tyler’s winning students. “This international competition is judged by some of the world’s most talented designers and educators. Being selected as a ‘Top Talent’ winner creates professional connections that can lead to various opportunities from networking, to mentorship, to help getting their first professional job.”
Winners receive a free Adobe Creative Cloud subscription (something already available to all students at Temple, which Adobe designates as a “Creative Campus”) as well as access to special website features, extra credentials and the ability to unlock an entire calendar year of opportunities.
