Each year, LCAD faculty select a student to design the Grapes for Grads logo, which is used on all marketing and media pieces for the event. The Rotary Club unveiled the logo and honored Tanner’s work at a recent weekly club meeting, attended by both Tanner and LCAD’s Chair of Graphic Design+Digital Media, Dana Herkelrath. Tanner is majoring in graphic design and digital media with an emphasis in action sports.
