Creative Contribution
Our Heartfelt Thanks to Piccadilly Printing for spearheading and mentoring our first student artist, Abby MacKnight. Piccadilly Printing’s lead graphic designer, Miranda Wilfong, was instrumental in guiding Abby through the creative process; from conception to print, offering her a wonderful hands-on learning experience in marketing and design.
