Baker College of Auburn Hills Student Wins Postcard Competition

April 27, 2011

Jeanette Wummel, a digital media design program student at Baker College of Auburn Hills, was one of the winners of the Detroit chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) Wish You Were Here postcard competition. Wummel won for her depiction of the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory. Located east of downtown Detroit on Belle Isle, it is the oldest conservatory in the nation.

“We are very proud of Jeanette’s accomplishment,” said Jacqueline Tessmer, Ph.D., Baker College of Auburn Hills graphic communication, digital media design chair. “She is a hard-working and conscientious student and a very talented graphic artist. We expect she will be very successful in her chosen field.”

There were more than 150 entries submitted. From the 150, AIGA selected 48, which were then opened to a public voting process. The subsequent 25 winners were honored at a special reception on April 21. Their entries will be printed and mailed to AIGA chapters throughout the United States.

Part of a school project, this is the first time that a Baker College of Auburn Hills student has won this competition. Wummel, who is working toward a graphic communications degree, expects to graduate summer 2012.
