FAMU Office of Communications Wins Three National Awards

The FAMU Office of Communications won three Collegiate Advertising Awards for designs created by graphic designer Brion Eason.

FAMU won the Bronze Award for the design of the College of Love and Charity umbrella, a Gold Award for Special Events for the Harambee Festival design, and a Gold Award for the Harambee logo in the Logos/Trademarks/Mascots category. 

 “When designing for the University, I always keep in mind my target audience, staying true to our traditions and being innovative to entice and introduce our culture to those outside of the FAMUly,” said Eason, who is a FAMU School of Journalism & Graphic Communication alumnus.  

“Winning these awards proves that not only do we speak to the traditions of the University but the design community at large.”

The Collegiate Advertising Awards program is an elite national program created to honor today’s most talented marketing professionals for outstanding excellence in all forms of advertising, marketing and promotion specific to higher education products and services.

“Congratulations to Brion Eason for his award-winning designs. This is another great accomplishment for him and our staff,” Office of Communications Director Keith Miles said.  “We have assembled an outstanding team to tell the FAMU story in design and on multiple platforms.  I am extremely proud of our work to leverage the FAMU brand.”
