The 2018 Senior Class of
Sam Houston State University Presents


It’s kind of like “certified fresh” through Rotten tomatoes, except, instead of films, we’re graphic designers (and more!) with a young and vibrant grasp on the worlds we’re about to be thrust into! Don’t let that trope fool you, though, we’re more than just fresh, crisp young adults, we’re also artists and dreamers with high hopes for tomorrow. We have been pushed from day one to think in ways that challenged our perspectives and taught us that change isn’t always a bad thing, that the real world won’t be easy, and that despite all of that, we are as ready for it as anyone.

SENIOR STUDIO CLASS OF 2018, where should we start? So much could be said; in fact, you could say that we’re really “all that and a bag of chips." Get it?

From collaborative experiences with guest speakers and validation of our chosen paths all the way to inclusivity with a new group of peers and starting to find some really cool jobs to apply for, this class has brought a lot of positivity into our lives. It has also brought a lot of humor and generally good vibes, which every young designer needs to make it in this ever-changing industry. We’ve learned the hard way that our printer doesn’t print with white ink, and we’ve laughed together at collective “your mom” jokes and the way our professors greet the class and classes around us. “Helloo~!” and “Questions, concerns, comments? No? Okay, then, who’s next?” We’ve participated in competitions, critiques, and conferences that will stick with us forever, and we’ve learned a lot more about the professional world than we probably thought we would before graduation.

We may not have ALL of our ducks in a row, but we’ve certainly got a solid idea how to get them in line.
