Twenty-one Fine Art seniors concentrating in Graphic Design at Mississippi State University are showing their work in this year’s Bachelor of Fine Arts thesis exhibition, available for viewing online. The exhibition titled, “Morphed,” showcases the growth and individuality of each student through their various design projects.

Through their years in the graphic design program at MSU, each student experienced a gradual transformation as both humans and designers. Graduating senior, Jillian Lovato, says “What ‘morphed’ means to me is that while you stay true to yourself, you are still evolving and improving yourself. You don’t let yourself stagnate for too long at any one point in your life.”
