Department Notes

As you see in the header above, we received an array of submissions in the IAPD 50th Anniversary Logo Competition. Participants were instructed to develop a logo and branding package responding to IAPD's rich history and strong foundation, and projection of a meaningful future. Teams were encouraged to envision a brand mark that embodies Interior Architecture & Product Design - where we have been and where we are going. And the winners are Natalie Berg ('14), 360 Architecture, Hannah Polys (5th year), and Christine Donley (4th year). The competition matched alumni/friends with current students in teams to propose their vision. Congratulations to these individuals!
