Student accomplishments

Kris Haro & Jonathan Wenske

CVAD Communication Design juniors Johnathan Wenske and Kris Haro had no idea when they designed their project, “When Nuture Calls” for Mark Allen’s class that the project would soon go viral on the internet. The class project called for students to design a campaign for a social issue or product.  Taking on the apparently highly controversial topic of public breastfeeding,  the project, was shown at the DVCC student award competition and was picked up by major news outlets and publications.
