Each year the President’s Writing Awards works with a graphic design student to create posters, fliers, and banners to market the awards. Manuel Baeza designed the poster for the 2018 President’s Writing Awards.

About [Student Name]

Manuel Baeza has been living in Boise and Meridian, Idaho, since the age of 5. Since a young age Manuel has had a deep passion for drawing and creating things out of random materials (building a building out of wire, cardboard, wires and hot glue). Growing up, Baeza believed that he would be an architect, but halfway through his high school years, he discovered graphic design and fell in love with it. Unknowingly, the countless doodles that he used to make when he was a kid grew alongside him, to the point in which those doodles on paper graduated to become doodles on the computer. Baeza is currently in his junior year at Boise State and is getting ready to apply to the graphic design program. In the future, he plans to take his graphic design to the world stage to use it as a way to bring people together and work for some of the world’s biggest companies.
