Design Alumna Wins Amazon Kindle Commercial Contest


This past August Amazon.com announced their Kindle Commercial Contest, with a grand prize of a $15,000.00 Amazon.com gift card.

We are extremely happy to announce that NIU School of Art alumna Deanne Mroz is the grand prize winner! Deanne completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Communication in May, 2005.

Her winning commercial may be viewed here.

Deanne 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. 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."

Congratulations, Deanne!
