Sometimes you just have to brag about your students.
Last Thursday at the Milwaukee 99 Awards Show Marquette took home two student awards – including Gold.
Emma Kolb, Anthony Virgilio and Alex Lahr won an honorable mention for Stronger Together a TV spot done for Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, which was their senior campaigns class client. Emma is now a freelance photographer working in Los Angeles. Anthony is an Integration Coordinator at Laughlin Constable. Alex is a Junior Copywriter at Thirsty Boy.
Nick Heiser won gold for OCD, a non-traditional promotional campaign to raise awareness about mental health, part of a project for the Mental Health Association of Milwaukee. Nick is an Associate Art Director at BVK.
I could not be more proud of these young professionals, and the strength and success of Marquette’s Fine Arts Program, which I direct.
I hope they invite me when they win at Cannes!
