CSUMB student designs "Together with Love" poster

As the date nears for the 30th annual "Together with Love" race, you'll probably see the posters everywhere.

What you may not know is that a student from Cal State Monterey Bay designed it.

The artwork was done by Diana Mejia in Bobbi Long’s introduction to digital graphic design class.

This is the fifth year the Monterey County Rape Crisis Center, sponsor of the annual race that is held near Valentine’s Day, has worked with CSUMB to develop the logo that is used in marketing materials – in print ads, on television, online and on coffee mugs – and on the T-shirts given to race participants.

Clare Mounteer, the center’s executive director, made several visits to the class to introduce the project and work with the students. Students vote on the top designs, which are then presented to the staff or board of the Monterey County Rape Crisis Center for final selection.

“It’s really fun to see how excited people get on race day when they first see the T-shirts,” Mounteer said, “and gratifying for the winning design student to see so many people actually wearing their artwork."

The race is the biggest annual fundraising event for the Rape Crisis Center.
