Album package design for the metallic hardcore/punk group I Am Heresy has been created by faculty member Tom Bejgrowicz, who also managed art direction, photography, and layout for the LP and CD packaging.
PCA&D faculty member and chair of the Foundation department Jeremy Waak sculpted the band's symbol used for the photo shoot, and senior photography major Kate Frese '14 served as photographic assistant.
See more about the project, as well as many of Tom's projects for music industry clients such as Killswitch Engage, Trace Adkins, Ghost, Huey Lewis & The News, James Bond, and Pink Floyd, can be found on Man Alive Creative.

Brian Gunzenhauser, assistant professor in the Graphic Design department, recently built a website for New York City Charter Schools. The site -- shown above -- is fully customized using WordPress and was built using HTML 5, CSS and jQuery (Parallax).
It has caught the attention of Communications Arts, the industry’s ultimate resource for creative excellence and publisher of an online presence and print magazine.
On February 20, Communications Arts.com named Brian’s site as its “Web Pick” of the day. Such exposure – being recognized by leaders in the industry -- is a real lift for artists and designers.
Liberal Arts instructor Jeff Howe has just published his second book in the past 12 months.
"How Do You Get a Whale in Vermont? The Unlikely Story of Vermont’s Official State Fossil" tells the story of a fossil whale, found in 1849, buried beneath a Vermont farmer's field. In 1993, a bill was signed declaring it to be the official "State Fossil" of Vermont. Jeff was curator of the geology museum at the University of Vermont at that time and was instrumental in getting the bill passed.
"How Do You Get a Whale in Vermont?" features a cover design and interior map designed by PCA&D senior Fine Art major Chalkley Matlack. (Published by Little Big Trees Press 2014; ISBN: 978-0-9912853-0-3)
Jeff was interviewed by "Seven Days", Vermont's leading arts and events magazine, about the book. See that here.
