CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Two University of Northern Iowa graphic design students recently received scholarships following a statewide student portfolio review at the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) exhibition in Des Moines.
A panel of professional designers selected the portfolios of UNI senior graphic design majors Sean Murphy, son of Patrick and Christine Murphy, from Dubuque, and Adam Rohwer, son of Karl and Eileen Rohwer, from Des Moines, as the two finest. The students were awarded top honors and $100 scholarships by the AIGA.
Ten students were interviewed. The event was open to students in design programs in Iowa.
