Graphic Design fundraiser – Jimmy [brief]`

Jimmy Edwards-Turner

The Cerritos College graphic design club sold baked goods and candies in front of the library last Thursday, Oct. 21, to raise funds for individual memberships to the American Institute of Graphic Arts.

The club was founded this semester and hopes to ensure its longevity by affiliating itself with the national organization, AIGA. Club President Jose Estrada hopes it will become a permanent addition to the college’s clubs.

He believes anyone pursuing graphic design deserves to have a chance to join the AIGA and increase his or her opportunities to succeed. In order to become a member of the AIGA, you have to pay a fee.

The 96-year-old association is registered as a nonprofit education and memberships are all sold at fixed rates.
