ASIAN STUDIES LOGO

The Art Design class, taught by Laura Lineberry, in Spring 2009 created logos for the revived Asian Studies Program.  The logo selected was created by Greer Borland.  The pamphlet for Asian Studies (to be printed over the summer) was designed through the collaboration of Melanie Kralovec and Rachel Litsky, along with Greer Borland.  Thanks to these students and the support of Laura Lineberry for their significant creative contribution to Asian Studies at UA.
