"Classic Country" by Jacob Mausbach

WSC student Jacob Mausbach's logo design, "Classic Country," was recognized by Graphis, the International Journal of Visual Communication in New York City.

Jacob Mausbach, a Wayne State College senior from Columbus, Neb., earned a Silver Award in Graphis' New Talent Annual 2017 for an honors project. 

“This is a notable accomplishment, and more so because nearly all the other winners are from large, respected universities,’’ said Professor Joshua Piersanti. Piersanti teaches graphic, web, and interaction design.

Mausbach, a senior in WSC's graphic design program, received the award for his logo design, "Classic Country." The New Talent Annual 2017 features the best work of new graphic designers, selected from international entries. Graphis, the International Journal of Visual Communication in New York City, has recognized the best work in graphic design, advertising, and photography since 1944.

Describing his finished work, Mausbach commented that it represents "a simple look, nothing too wild and colorful." Mausbach’s work will be presented in Graphis' New Talent Annual 2017 publication, available in hard cover and digital copy. His winning entry can be found online at www.graphis.com/entry/3e7a180a-0ef6-48ed-a9c6-7dca06ce3adc/
