Graphic design students in the “Design for Good” (DESN 4200) course taught by Noriko Yuasa recently teamed with Webster’s Institute for Human Rights and Humanitarian Studies to create a new five-page program brochure. The project allowed the students to practice their skills on a for-print project, with the Institute as the “client.”

Five teams of graphic design students competed for the winning project bid, creating five options for the client to choose from. The winning brochure [PDF] was created by Daniel Frumhoff and Ashley Villarreal, who used colorful images of people from around the world to illustrate the Institute’s focus on universal rights and respect for human dignity. Frumhoff also designed promotional materials for Webster’s 2014 Annual Human Rights Conference, which focused on the rights of the family in October.

The Institute houses the undergraduate and graduate programs in International Human Rights and also hosts a variety of co-curricular events on campus.

“Choosing between these five projects was really difficult because they were all incredible in their own ways,” said Lindsey Kingston, director of the Institute and assistant professor of International Human Rights in the College of Arts & Sciences. “It’s such a special thing for us to have a brochure that was designed by our own Webster students. I really appreciate the work they’ve put into this, and I’m also thankful to their professor for being open to this partnership.”
