Alice Premeau ’22, the winner of Chapman’s annual State of the University poster contest, shares her creative process, love of purple, and how the past informs the future.
Each year, Chapman University President Daniele Struppa announces a poster contest to the students in the Advanced Graphic Design Course, in Wilkinson College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences, with the winning design presented at the State of the University address; this year’s theme was research. “The theme was very open to interpretation and gave a lot of creative freedom,” Premeau says. “I started conceptualizing my idea based on what I believe the nature of research is. I started to think about it as something rooted in the past, but continuously building into the future.”
