Students Receive Honors for Web Designs
Millersville University art and design junior Bri Piccari, along with recent art and design graduates Blake Rowley ’12, Mike Sohl ’12 and Hayley Harclerode ’12, recently received honorable mention awards in Brian Miller’s Above the Fold contest for web designs.
The Above the Fold Student Design Competition, adapted from Miller’s best-selling book on web design titled “Above the Fold,” honored the best web, motion and interactive designs from students around the world. There were more than 125 entries from 16 different institutions.
All winning entries are featured in the Above the Fold Awards gallery both online and on the iPad app. Honorable mentions received at least two votes for Best in Show from the judges. The winner of Best in Show was the only piece to receive four out of five votes.
Rowley received honorable mention for his design of the Academy of Art university website, and Piccari received an honorable mention for her website designed to promote College Radio Day. Harclerode received honorable mention for his website design of the Bryant University’s Musical Mustache Bash, an all-day event dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer. Sohl also received an honorable mention for his design of the website Warped America, which features an inside look into the way our generation puts our current pop culture icons on such a large platform.
Another Millersville art and design graduate, Erin Good ’12, was also recognized recently when her website, www.Erin-Good.com, was selected as Best Designed Site of the Day by HOW Interactive Design. Patrick McNeil, web design expert and the author of the Web Designer’s Idea book series, hand-picks the best designed websites to showcase as How Interactive Design’s Sites of the Day. Good’s design was picked for being solid and functional.
