Three Philadelphia University students and a recent alumna have been named semi-finalists in the Adobe Design Achievement Awards, an international design competition. They include M.S. in surface imaging alumna Kaijie Chen ’16; graphic design communication students Leah Pellegrino ’18 and Gabi Stahley ’19; and interactive design and development student Myra Lloyd ’18.

“Competitions such as the Adobe Design Achievement Awards are essential for students to participate in,” said Michael Norcross ’09, adjunct professor of graphic design communication. “They provide great exposure and are impressive on a resume. Selected work elevates the project from simply an assignment to an award-winning portfolio piece.”

Winners will be announced Aug. 25. Projects will be judged on originality and creative excellence, effectiveness in meeting a communication objective and demonstrating skills in applying Adobe products toward these ends.
