Award-winning poster on gun violence by Logan Miller

Logan Miller, Woodbury University Class of ’15 Graphic Design student, has won International Platinum level honors in the prestigious Graphis Social & Political Protest Poster Competition.

Miller’s poster addresses gun violence in the United States and earned him the Graphis Platinum trophy (http://www.graphis.com/entry/aff67fa6-15ed-4e16-bc85-d7f6315c0695/) from Graphis, The International Journal of Visual Communication. Founded in 1944, Graphis publishes the world's most significant and influential works from the greatest talent in design, advertising and photography.

Designed as a class project, the poster was originally published in the New Talent Annual. With this honor, the work will now be published in the professional 2015 Design Annual, along side of winners from such renowned graphic design firms as Pentagram, Milton Glaser Inc, Looking, and Takashi Akiyama Studio. Miller’s award is one of eight Platinum level honors conferred internationally.

“Logan’s work rightly belongs next to those from the most esteemed professionals in our industry,” said Sue Vessella, M.F.A., Chair of Woodbury’s Graphic Design Department and Associate Dean of the School of Media, Culture & Design. “We congratulate him and can’t wait to see where his creativity and superb technique take him.”
