Three Graphic Design Students Earn Public Recognition


The works of three Graphic Design students will soon be part of the North Richland Hills Signal Art Program, a program that utilizes original artwork by local artists to decorate traffic signal boxes throughout the city.

Jessica Dawson, Marissa Merrill and Anika Carlson submitted artwork they created in their Digital Illustration class for consideration in this year’s exhibit titled “Legends of Music.” Residents and visitors to the city will enjoy Dawson’s vivid portraits of guitar great Jimi Hendrix and country icon Willie Nelson as well as Merrill’s striking image of the Beatles and Carlson’s purple-hued portrait of a young Ella Fitzgerald. The images will be printed on vinyl sheeting and installed on signal boxes in September.
