Find the Library @ Your Place

Library & Design Communications I and II

The History of the SAC Library Poster Contest 

In 2018, SAC librarian Karen Briere and Communications Department faculty member Brook Rosser met to collaborate on a joint project that would not only bring the students of the Design Communication I and II classes a real-life project that fulfilled the requirements of their course, but also promoted the SAC Library's valuable services to the SAC community. 
The Design Communications students were given the assignment by Professor Rosser to create a bookmark and a poster for their client, the SAC Library. The SAC Library, acting as the client, provided the students with the requirements of the project by giving minimal creative input but all the specific information that might be incorporated into the design such as location, hours, services, etc.
Students were given assignment deadlines to meet for the course and the culminating event was to present their designs to the client. In 2018 and 2019 the students presented their designs to the library staff in the Moody Learning Center Library Performance Area and the designs were displayed for the entire college community to view on the fourth floor of the library and later on the 2nd floor of the library. The library staff were given the opportunity to vote for their top 3 poster designs and the winners had their posters printed and displayed in the library and various locations across campus. Every bookmark design was printed and distributed to library users. 
In 2020, due to Covid-19 placing everyone in the remote environment a few changes were made. Instead of a bookmark, students were asked to create a Facebook Banner image to be used on the library Facebook page throughout the upcoming semester. Students presented their designs in a Zoom meeting room to the class and the library staff. 
Since we are not on campus to display our posters we have designed this virtual display of all the student posters that were created this year along with the past winners of the contest.
We are very proud of our students creative designs and are honored to present them here for your enjoyment.
