Four members of the FUEL staff met with graphic design students at Kansas University in Lawrence at a portfolio review session organized by the KU College of Fine Arts Design Department. The one-on-one conferences provided an opportunity to meet students and offer feedback on their work, while acquainting them with FUEL’s collaborative design approach.
“We’re always eager to connect with talented young designers and encourage them to pursue opportunities in Iowa,” says FUEL designer Matt Kempel. “The event allowed us to learn more about KU’s program and build relationships there.”
