The Department of Art’s graphic designers feature prominently in a new book about how to create the perfect artist’s portfolio.  Larry Volk and Danielle Currier’s No Plastic Sleeves, A Complete Portfolio Guide for Photographers and Designers (Focal Press) includes an interview with Professor Jamie Burwell Mixon about her teaching methods regarding senior portfolios and self-promotional materials.

Highlighting the achievements of students from Professor Mixon’s Advanced Graphics/Senior Portfolio class, the book includes self-promos by Will Bryant, Beverly Hayman and Wesley Stuckey, as well as interviews with Bryant and Hayman.
