Two students from Howard University’s Department of Art are featured in the February 2017 issue of Graphic Design USA (GDUSA). The annual “Students to Watch” honorees are selected from top art and design schools across the nation.

Graphic design majors, Katherine Downs and Cameron Roy Crosby, are in their senior year at Howard and will embark upon careers in design after graduation in May.

Katherine is from Athens, GA where she entered the creative field drawing cartoons for her local newspaper and school magazine. At Howard, she continues to contribute to the campus newspaper. She enjoys design with a point of view and a sense of humor.

“I was very fortunate to be featured. It was an honor to be recognized in a national publication representing Howard University. Black women are significantly underrepresented in the field of graphic design so it is necessary that we are adamant about self-promotion. I thank Dr. Miriam Ahmed for the nomination and all of her help!”
~ Katherine Downs, BFA 2017

Cameron grew up in California and nurtured interests in architecture and the French language along with his design career. He has an affinity for minimalist design and aims to lead a life of genuine happiness through simplicity, travel, and good drinks.

“I’ve been following GDUSA’s STWL for a few years now thinking it would be awesome to be a part of it. I consider this a dream actualized and another step in the right direction towards becoming an industry-recognized artist! Forever grateful to Howard University’s Art Department and The Creative Group for the selection!”
~ Cameron Roy Crosby, BFA 2017
