Parsons AAS GD / AID FOR AIDS International’s Holiday Card Design Student Competition. The 2011 winners


Guest Contributor | Victoria Benatar


The AAS Graphic Design Program at Parsons partnered with AID FOR AIDS International to create a Holiday Card Design Student Competition.

Of the 78 submissions from students at Parsons The New School for Design, the competition judges this week chose FIVE designs to adorn this season’s AID FOR AIDS International’s holiday cards.

Marc Jacobs International has joined AID FOR AIDS International for their holiday cards this year, and chose one of the five designs, by Debra Ohayon, as their own Holiday Card and bought several thousand cards for their corporate use.

The proceeds from the sale of the cards will go to benefit AFAI.

And now, the big announcement!

The 2011 winners are:

Janet Kim []

Jasmine Kounang []

Debra Ohayon []

Paula Parano []

As far as AFAI is concerned, you are all winners. We also want to thank the Parsons administration specially Katarzyna Gruda, the Director of AAS Graphic Design, and judges William Morrisey, Jessica Weber, Victoria Benatar, and Aaron Brashear for making this competition possible.

We also wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to our corporate partner and supporter Marc Jacobs International, which sponsored the holiday/Christmas card competition.
