2013 Winter Gala Award Winners

It was cold evening in Northwest Arkansas with many streets and sidewalks still covered in ice, but it was warm indoors at our 7th Annual New Design School gala. A saying shared with young designers, “You’ve got to learn the rules to break them,” was our theme. David Lewis made some incredible rule-breaking food by making the foods that looked sweet, savory and vice versa. We had great entertainment by harpist Beth Stockdell and DJ Baby Armie. Student packaging and typography designs were displayed.
