KENNESAW, Ga.—Kennesaw State University student Nicholas Voss of Cumming was recently awarded second place in the Yellow Pages Association Collegiate Creative Competition. Fellow KSU student Melissa Leonard of Marietta received one of eight honorable mentions in the graphic design contest which attracted more than 1,000 entries from 200 colleges and universities across the country. Both Voss and Leonard are visual arts majors studying graphic design with Associate Professor of Art Carole Maugé-Lewis.
Students were challenged to design Yellow Pages advertisements both in print and online for a dental office that demonstrates creative work, makes excellent use of available space and includes necessary information for a consumer to make a purchasing decision.
Last year, KSU students won first and second place in the competition.
