Core Talk

Core Talk is an ongoing series of visiting presenters sharing their professional experiences through a public lecture and other supporting activities during their visit to the University of North Texas. 

Sponsored by the Core Design program and selected by the Core Design Coordinators, Laura Beard, and James Thurman, guest speakers represent a wide range of disciplines and professions including full-time studio artists and designers, faculty, curators, writers of a spectrum of experience, from early career to the internationally known. 

The goal of the series is to facilitate, enhance, and broaden the educational experience of all students in the foundational program to help ensure their future success, both while a part of the College of Visual Arts and Design and beyond.

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.
