The Year of Kam Mak

It began with in Year of the Rat for Kam Mak.  Since 2008, the professor of Illustration has created the drawing for the U.S. Postal stamp in recognition of the Lunar Calendar.  Last year it was vibrant kumquats that decorated our holiday card envelops. This coming year it’s a feisty dragon with a jaw nearly unhinged. For 44 cents beginning January 2012, you’ll be able to send off your snail mail in fire-breathing, big-toothy style!

“Design firms uniquely tackle how to garner the attention of myriad audiences who are, quite simply, distracted,” noted Asst. Dean Erika Massaquoi. “Hence, there is a premium on information and experience-oriented design that can grab audiences, communicate effectively, and service clients.”

“The AIGA has identified this as  a trend towards an ‘attention economy,’” said Massaquoi. “Thus it is not surprising that this year we saw a further spike of interest in Graphic Design—I believe the velocity of media has garnered this student interest.”
