FSC students win design award
LAKELAND, Fla. (May 29, 2007) — Three Florida Southern students won the design award in a web site design competition for Franwell, Inc., of Lakeland, which provides software solutions and radio frequency identification to supply chain operations. Web team members Steve Hamilton, Brett Rubin and Nate Sligh created the winning design.
The design competition was integrated as a required final project for the Introductory Web Design course taught by Lisa Erdman, assistant professor of art at Florida Southern. The students worked in teams of three to develop an updated, contemporary design concept for the Franwell website. They used a variety of software programs, including Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Macromedia Dreamweaver, to design their web site concepts and create the interactive functionality of the site.
Hamilton is a graduating communication major and son of Steven and Laura Hamilton of Loxahatchee, Fla.; Rubin is a freshman graphic design major and son of Lyle and Mary Rubin of Odessa, Fla.; and Sligh is a junior graphic design major and son of David and Trudi Sligh of Lakeland, Fla.
