It was announced today that Graphic Design student, Malik Moore, is the winner of the National Portfolio Day Association poster contest. Malik’s design will appear on posters announcing Portfolio Day in high schools and community colleges across the country.
When the vote came for which designs to submit on from FIT, Assistant Dean Dr. Erika Masaquoi said she felt pulled to Malik’s work. “I said ‘This is very smart. It’s of the moment. It’s fresh.’ The design is a bit edgy. It has goth and urban couture elements that are really in trend right now. ”
Malik will receive a $500 honorarium. His design will be on display in thousands of high schools and community colleges in the US and Canada.
National Portfolio Day sponsors events for visual artists and designers who wish to pursue an education in the visual and related arts. At these events, prospective students can meet with representatives from colleges accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.
