Pittsburgh, PA, June 11, 2013—California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, California, also known as Cal Poly, has won the 2013 Print and Graphics Scholarship (PGSF) College Poster Design Competition. The poster, designed by Adam Houghton and titled “Set Sail For Your Future…with a PGSF Scholarship,” will be given to all colleges and high schools in the United States that have printing and graphic communication programs for the 2013–2014 academic year. This student-designed poster is used to promote the availability of scholarships to pursue a career in the graphic communication industry. The posters will be available in the PGSF Booth 5151 in Education Main Street during PRINT 2013 in Chicago, September 8–12, 2013.

The Poster Design Competition was entered by many classes and individual students who treated the competition entry as a real working assignment. “At Cal Poly we educate students by assigning projects that represent the expectations of industry—this project was part of Cal Poly’s ‘Learn by Doing’ education philosophy, and we are thrilled Adam Houghton’s poster was chosen!” said Lorraine Donegan, Associate Professor in the Graphic Communication Department at Cal Poly.
