Katie Spak Receives Design Excellence Award at DIS Summer 2017

August 29, 2017

Katie Spak, a rising junior at Stamps, has been recognized with a Design Excellence award for her work in graphic design at DIS Summer 2017.  Each summer, DIS, a non-profit study abroad foundation with locations in Copenhagen and Stockholm, recognizes one outstanding student in each discipline (architecture, interior architecture, furniture design, urban design, and graphic design) with a Design Excellence Award.

Design Excellence Awards are given to a student who has distinguished himself/herself through diligence, commitment, academic performance, and who contributes to a positive, collaborative learning environment in class.

During the summer, Katie and her studio friends have been working under the guidance of DIS Faculty Heidi Grynderup Poulsen. Their project was a ‘New visual identity for Spis Min Gris (Eat My Pig)’, an organic butcher shop in Copenhagen.
