Cambrian College graphic design professor Ron Beltrame created a piece for the University and College Designers Association's 40th anniversary. He was one of 40 artists from a field of about 1,000 artists in North America to have a design chosen.

Cambrian College graphic design professor Ron Beltrame was selected from about 1,000 University and College Designers Association members to commission work for the organization's 40th anniversary.

Beltrame was one of 40 artists to answer “what inspires you” or “why design for education” through graphic design.

According to a press release put out by the college, Beltrame weaved his cycling interest into a piece inspired by Bauhaus design philosophies. His piece will be one of the first 10 displayed on the organization's website.

“It is an honour to participate in this commemorative project and to have the opportunity to share my work on an international stage,” Beltrame stated in the press release.

“This is an excellent example of the strong support the (University and College Designers Association) has for its members and for the design work being taught and created at the post-secondary level.”

His work will be featured in the association's 40 Designs Project.

The University and College Designers Association advocates on behalf of post-secondary design educators in North America.
