Brian Sooy selected for inclusion in BGSU 100@100 Exhibit

Two design projects by Brian Sooy have been included in the 100@100 Exhibit of  BGSU alumni artists and design professionals, to celebrate the centennial of Bowling Green State University.

Each of the four studio areas in the School of Art, Graphic Design, 2-D, 3-D, and Digital Art, selected 25 works by outstanding alumni to represent the School’s proudest accomplishments over the past century.

The works include a giant-print New Living Translation Bible, typeset in the custom typeface design Lucerna, designed by Brian Sooy for Tyndale House Publishers.   Other major Bible translations, such as the New International Version (NIV) Life Application Bible and New King James Version (NKJV) Life Application Bible, have also been typeset in Lucerna, making it one of the most widely-used fonts for Bible translations.

The second work to be included is the Black Swamp Percussion product catalog. Black Swamp Percussion was started in Bowling Green, Ohio and is the world's leading manufacturer of concert percussion instruments.

The exhibit is on display from October 2 through November 17, 2010 in the Dorothy Uber Bryan Gallery.
