Full Steam


President’ s Office, Ringling College of Art and Design


Each year, the Ringling College of Art and Design Board of Trustees proudly awards its highest honor­—the Trustee Scholarship—to an exclusive group of extraordinary rising seniors. The hard work, talent, spirit, and dedication of these award recipients exemplify excellence. Each Trustee Scholar receives a $5,000 scholarship, which is presented to them at an official recognition ceremony in the fall. This year, I was honored to be chosen as the trustee scholar for graphic design and had the opportunity to concept and design the materials for the award show.

At the start, all the trustee scholars were asked to describe their class in words or phrases. The concept of "Full Steam" was pulled from that list to speak to the scholar’s industrious, innovative, and unique personalities.


I worked with David John Reyes and Maddy Hodgetts, who they created the motion components for the gala.
