Graphic Design USA holds a an annual national design competition that honors works of all kinds from print to packaging to web graphics. This past year, Brittany won three American Graphic Design awards including one for her work rebranding the Media Arts Studio.
“My passion for graphic design was born in the Media Arts Studio when I was 17, so, winning an award for creating the latest logo and brand for the Media Arts Studio was truly an honor and extremely humbling. I am just happy that I was able to create something for my MAS family. They are responsible for my inspiration and drive to be a great designer.”
The editors of Graphic Design USA have recognized the best and brightest creative professionals through their national design competitions for over four decades.
