(Philadelphia, PA) Four recent Moore alumnae have work selected for the 2012 Adobe Design Achievement Awards (ADAA) Semifinal round.

The Adobe® Design Achievement Awards celebrates student and faculty achievement reflecting the powerful convergence of technology and the creative arts. The competition - which showcases individual and group projects created with industry-leading Adobe creative software - honors the most talented and promising student graphic designers, photographers, illustrators, animators, digital filmmakers, developers and computer artists from the world's top institutions of higher education.

Graphic design students Samantha Emonds, Rachel Britcher, Brittany Slopey and Jessica Massabrook were selected after they submitted projects. Emonds work involved a brand identity project for Apple Farm Summer Camp. Britcher worked on an infographic for Adoption Matters. Slopey did a series of bike posters, titled “Ride Till You Die.”  Massabrook did a series of species cards for birds in the region of North America.

Entries will be processed and then transferred to the San Jose, CA corporate offices for a final judging round in August. Any semifinal entries not selected in the final round will be forwarded to Adobe Regional offices for exhibits and further publicity.

For the fourth consecutive year, Adobe has partnered with the International Council of Graphic Design Associations (Icograda) to hold the ADAA 2012 awards ceremony during the DesignThinkers conference to be held in Toronto, Canada, November 8 - 9, 2012. Icograda is the world body for professional communication design.
