Mississippi State University graphic design professor Jamie Burwell Mixon is being honored with a HOW International Design Award for her Mumford & Sons concert poster.

Sponsored annually by HOW magazine, the International Design Award competition recognizes excellence on a global scale. Mixon is one of 292 recipients selected from over 1,000 entries submitted from around the world.

Founded in 1985, HOW encompasses a variety of different products, competitions and events. Its mission is to serve the business, creativity and technology needs of graphic designers.

Award winners will receive exposure in the upcoming spring 2017 edition of HOW magazine, as well an online feature at www.howdesign.com.

Mixon has been designing concert posters for the Verizon arena since 2004. She typically illustrates four to five each year.

“I’m excited to have my Mumford & Sons poster chosen for this competition. It always feels good to have your work recognized internationally,” said Mixon.
