Digital Safari 11th graders Jesus Sanchez, Zach Asuncion, Lucia Cruz, Elizabeth Atkinson, and Alberto Moreno were recognized Monday, May 16th by the Pittsburg City Council for their work promoting the Pittsburg Criterion.
For their spring project, students took on responsibilities for providing design services for clients throughout the area, including the Pittsburg Foundation, The Cerebral Palsy Center for the Bay Area, the John Muir Association, The Willows Theatre, Candy Stripers of America, and the Northern California Family Center. Student teams worked with each of these organizations to develop graphic, web and video materials to meet their marketing, outreach and promotional needs. In all, DSA students worked with 12 different clients and all helped spread the word about the talent, good work and amazing people at MDHS to the greater community.
In their work for the Pittsburg Foundation, the team developed a series of healthy living posters that were displayed throughout the race. The brightly colored and original artwork promoted exercise, a healthy diet, and getting out and exploring nature around Pittsburg. The work was a hit with the Foundation and led to the recognition of the council.
