Graphic Design and Illustration majors are frequently finding opportunities to add international exhibition recognition to their resumés. Most recently, a group of students and faculty participated in Typozone /4/, an international exhibition based out of Eger, Hungary. Missouri State University was represented as the only university from the United States among 10 other institutions from Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia.
Typozone /4/ celebrates the creative and cultural impact of typography in design. After a two-year hiatus caused by the Covid-19 outbreak, Typozone’s fourth installment showcases the works originally submitted for the 2020 theme, “fiction,” and also includes video submissions for 2022 that center around the idea of “metaverse.” The exhibition was on view at Temple Galéria in Eger, Hungary from April 27 – May 27 and can still be viewed online via the virtual catalog.
The following design students and alumni were featured in the exhibition: Kjella Acosta, Alex Bonhert, Luther Cameron, Paige Cawein, Alex Ennor, Koramadou Heng, Timothy Keeling, Shane Knauth, Duc Le, Shelby Lewis, Julia L. Mason, Lena Nguyen, Bao Nguyen, Daysha Rothschild, Keaton Sharpe, Ellen Steckler, Andrew Stinnett, and Natalie Sykora. Three Graphic Design and Illustration professors were also featured: Balazs Faa, Maria Gerasimchuk-Djordjevic, and Keeli M. McCarthy.
