Ringling College of Art and Design 2015 Commencement

All of the components for Ringling College of Art and Design's 2015 Commencement. Components include announcement, reception invitation, program, tickets, and information brochure.

The concept behind the design is about connection. As a group, we are incredibly diverse - over 40 countries are represented just in the senior class. We come from different backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences. But of all 7 billion people in the world, our class - less than 300 of us - can say we are Ringling's Class of 2015. That is something that, no matter where we end up and no matter what we end up doing, will connect us forever.

To show this, I pinpointed every country represented by the seniors on a map and threaded a string from that country back to Sarasota, Florida, where Ringling is located. From there, I filled in the space between those threads to and cut out the shape to create the image.
