UWG professor's design to be featured in journal

CARROLLTON, Ga. -- A graphic design professor at the University of West Georgia will see her art featured in the 2014 Graphics Annual, a prestigious European design journal.

Cassie Hester's piece was among 150 chosen for the journal from approximately 850 submissions worldwide.

"Having my poster included in the 2014 Graphics Annual is a huge honor," Hester said in a statement. "Graphics is a well-respected international design journal that reaches a large international audience."

Hester's piece features a logotype laser-cut into clear acrylic, which was then anchored to a black board. Red lasers were shone through the acrylic. The piece was photographed and turned into a poster for "Art Incend," an annual UWG event.

"Not only is this awesome for Cassie and the graphic design program, but it also brings worldwide attention to the department of art and University of West Georgia," UWG assistant professor of graphic design Joey Hannaford said in a statement.

UWG's art department is already well known for producing a number of winning T-shirt designs for the AJC Peachtree Road Race, including the 2013 design.
