In addition to the student accolades, PhilaU’s graphic design communication program has been named one of Graphic Design USA’s top design schools for the fifth year in a row. “Education is more important than ever as the lines between the studio and the classroom, the office and the academy, the university and society, continue to blur,” the magazine said.

Meyer and Noebels are among only 54 students nationwide to be featured in the January/February 2016 Graphic Design USA story on outstanding students. This is the fifth straight year PhilaU graphic design communication students made the list.

Meyer told the magazine she “loves to work through the design process and to think creatively to solve design problems.” She said studying abroad in Rome helped shape her design aesthetic and that her favorite designers are Milton Glaser and Cipe Pineles. Read more about Meyer here.
