The 14th annual AIGA SD Student Portfolio Exhibition was a great success with over 200 attendees this year. Special thanks to Min Choi of SDSU who organized this big event that showcased the portfolios of graduates. The featured speaker at the event was the amazing Paul Drohan, an alumni of San Diego City College Graphic Design who now heads up Digitaria San Diego[see digitaria.com]. At City we are incredibly proud of this year’s wonderful graduating class and wish to salute them and the following students who brought home 6 honors for our campus. Special thanks go out to Andrea Singer and Lisa Starace for being so instrumental in guiding students this year. We also wish to give a shout out to Sean Bacon one of our alumni who gives so freely of his time and talent to help push the portfolios. The portfolio class was team taught this year by Amy Levine and Candice López. Bravo to the class of 2010!
