Two Cedarville University senior graphic design majors recently placed as finalists in the fourth annual Flux student competition, hosted by the Blue Ridge chapter of the AIGA, a professional association for design.

Andrew Cody, a Cedarville resident, submitted his design of a new cover for the classic novel “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.” He says, “I believe we subconsciously judge a book by its cover because it gives us an idea of the book’s style, direction and target audience. In creating this cover, I wanted to give it a modern yet accessible feeling, appealing to all readers.”

Cameron Reynolds-Flatt entered a website he designed with the help of three other students: Mitch Wysong, Tanner Perrien and Adam Putiniski. “In 2009, we noticed other colleges don’t have online classifieds like Cedarville does,” said Reynolds-Flatt. “Ours is wildly popular, since it helps students save money on books and dorm items. We saw this as an excellent opportunity to create a classifieds system that was simple, modern and filled with useful features.”

Reynolds-Flatt and his team have been focusing on marketing and connecting with students from area universities. They are also working on major updates to be released before 2010.

“Many Cedarville professors have been so encouraging, personally advising us based on their real-world experience,” Reynolds-Flatt says. “We hope Cedarville will continue to help us and other entrepreneurs create businesses by applying our academic knowledge to practical experiences.”
