Cal Poly GrC TAGA Team wins three awards!

Congratulations are in order as Cal Poly’s Technical Association of the Graphic Arts (TAGA) Student Chapter’s annual research journal took home the awards of Best in Design Quality, Best in Production Quality, and Best in Digital Enhancement at this year’s national TAGA Conference! The TAGA club spent seven months putting together the journal, designing a layout, and producing it all on printing presses in the Graphic Communication Department. This club truly is an example of Cal Poly’s ‘Learn by Doing’ motto, as students learn how to create the journal concept to production. This year’s journal featured a beautiful magazine-inspired layout, clear coat varnished topographic map details, and interactive augmented reality that brings the cover design to life. Additionally, a die cut slip cover holds and protects the journal. The 2020 TAGA team consisted of Erica Taylor, Aileen Vasquez, Will Olson, Bailey Yuen, Christine Peters, Alice Ish, and Luis Coreas. The team would like to thank their advisor Professor Brian Lawler, as well as the GrC Technician, Dr. Peter Schlosser for all their help completing the journals.
