NIU School of Art alumna Deanne Mroz won the grand prize in this summer’s Kindle Commercial Contest, amazon.com has announced.
Mroz, who completed her bachelor of fine arts degree in visual communication in May 2005, wins a $15,000 amazon.com gift card. Her winning commercial is online.
Mroz has expressed how significant her primary professor, Steve Quinn, was to her development.
“I hope this all brings a smile to your face and gives your students hope for their future in design,” she said. “I believe we were the first class that you taught After Effects to and I have definitely used that knowledge to create many commercials at work and also many other videos, since social media is now such a huge part of advertising. The knowledge you taught me has been priceless and I truly appreciate it.”
