The HPPD asked HPU if students would be willing to create the posters, and students in Allan Beaver’s graphics design class took on the challenge. They met with the Police Department to determine their needs and submitted 12 different posters. Four were chosen and will be used on HPPD’s website in addition to being printed and posted at community colleges, military bases and other community locations.

“It is essential for graphic design students to have the opportunity to work on a project for the real world and interact with the client,” said Beaver, HPU’s Artist in Residence. “The graphic design class hit a homerun with the bases loaded. I was extremely proud of their collective effort and great work.”

“This was a unique opportunity to experience application of graphic design for a real client rather than the theoretical application of skills for a classroom assignment,” said senior Brooklyn Bowers. “My poster being chosen was also meaningful because something that I created will be used in the community and be influential in somebody’s career decision.”
