Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Campaign by Cornish Student Colin Breit

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Campaign by Cornish Student Colin Breit

Over the course of 15 weeks, 30 Junior level students from Cornish College of the Arts, in Seattle, created packaging for the 7th Annual Design + Packaging Show, held at the end of the semester on campus in downtown Seattle.

I've been teaching this same class for 13 years. This past semester has been one of my favorites. Ever.

The show is a big, open invitation for the local design and business community to check out their work. On display will be 120 packaging projects for a diverse clientele: Nordstrom, Starbucks, and Trojan Condoms being the big three, but projects for Northwest wineries and skateboards will also be on display.

It's been a fun semester and I'm proud of my students' work. If you are in the area, please stop by Cornish on April 29th from 11am - 1:30pm, and meet the next generation of talented young designers.
