Melissa Orr is BIC's 2020 AIGA Fresh Grad

In June, BIC was proud to be represented by Melissa Orr at AIGA’s 10th Annual Fresh Grad event. She will present her team's 2019 One Show Silver Pencil-winning campaign "The Crisis Collection" for Il Makiage Makeup.  Her presentation will be showcased with a select company of recently graduated peers from other illustrious local and regional graduate design-oriented programs, including Parsons School of Design, Cooper Union, NYU Tisch, SVA’s MPS in Branding, Pratt Institute, and SCAD.

What is Fresh Grad?
 It's a yearly event held by the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) that offers graduate design students a chance to present their thesis and represent their school in a public forum to an enthusiastic and supportive audience.

Last year’s BIC winner, Natalie Alcide, was able to present her Bailey’s Almande campaign to a live audience at the New School in Greenwich Village. Unfortunately, the 2020 pandemic shifted this year’s celebration to a virtual one. However, this link allows us to see the work from all the 2020 Fresh Grads, including Melissa’s.

Congrats, Melissa. You rocked it. This was a real “cherry on top” of a month of amazing accomplishments while in the BIC Program, including winning honors for the highest Portfolio Thesis Defense score in the Creative Track.
