K.J. Kantola Wins Logo Design Contest

AIS student Kjerstin “KJ” Kantola designed the winning logo and graphic design standards for DeafTec, the Technology Education Center for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Students. Kjerstin's design was chosen from among several produced by students in the Identity Systems Design course, taught by Prof. Frank Argento.

DeafTec, an Advanced Technological Education (ATE) National Center of Excellence, is being established at RIT/NTID funded by a $4.45 million four-year grant from the National Science Foundation. Professors Donna Lange, Myra Pelz, and Gary Long are the Principal Investigators and they teamed together to choose the winning design.

Kjerstin will graduate with her AAS degree in Arts & Imaging Studies at the end of this winter quarter. After a couple of months visiting with family and friends in Washington state KJ will return to her hometown Juneau, Alaska to pursue further education and career opportunities. We know that KJ will be very successful.
