Telolith magazine receives two graphic design awards

The college English and visual arts programs was recently notified of two graphic design awards that the 2008 Telolith received from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association of Columbia University in New York.
Graphic design students from the college’s visual arts program design and layout Telolith each year as a class project.
The 2008 staff received a Certificate of Merit for multi-page design of a literary/art magazine for the two-page spread featuring a photograph by Doug Wehmeier and the story “Imaginary Lines” by JoLynn Earnest. California State University took first in that category.
“We are particularly proud of our second-place certificate in typography for use of a designed or art headline,” said art instructor and Telolith sponsor Susan Copas. A University of Miami magazine placed first.
Last fall, CSPA notified Telolith that it earned a first-place award with a Gold Medalist certificate.
Magazines are critiqued by a panel of judges, who note strengths along with suggestions for improvement in the areas of literary and artistic content, as well as graphic design.
The unveiling of the 2009 Telolith magazine will be on May 8 in the Shank Humanities Building lobby, from 12:30 to 1 p.m.
“Please come and meet our talented group of writers, artists,and designers,” Copas said. “Everyone is invited to attend.” Light refreshments will be served.
