Award-winning APSU student presents ‘Threesixty' March 14-17

Before you ask, Ranop Subhawong, an APSU art student from Bangkok, has only been snowboarding once. And it wasnt pretty.

But while doing some channel-surfing, he found ESPNs Winter X Games and became fascinated with snowboard culture, language and design.

That fascination inspired Threesixty, a graphic design exhibit with a snowboarding theme, which Subhawong will display March 14-17 in the Trahern Student Gallery, Room 108.

The opening reception is scheduled for 7- 9 p.m., Monday, March 14.
Before you ask, Ranop Subhawong, an APSU art student from Bangkok, has only been snowboarding once. And it wasn't pretty.

But while doing some channel-surfing, he found ESPN's Winter X Games and became “fascinated with snowboard culture, language and design.”

That fascination inspired “Threesixty,” a graphic design exhibit with a snowboarding theme, which Subhawong will display March 14-17 in the Trahern Student Gallery, Room 108.

The opening reception is scheduled for 7- 9 p.m., Monday, March 14.

Subhawong's exhibit will feature designs for Threesixty, a fictional snowboarding company. Guests can see his vision for everything from the company's vibrantly colored snowboard designs to the catalog, letterhead and business cards.

The son of Itthaporn and Napaporn Subhawong of Bangkok, Subhawong will receive a Bachelor of Fine Arts in graphic design in May. He plans to move to Chicago to pursue a career in graphic design.

An award—winning photographer and Web designer, Subhawong swept the 2004 Student Talent Advertising Recognition (STAR) Awards, sponsored by the Nashville Advertising Federation, with honors as Best Photographer (“New York City triptych”), Gold Awards for Black and White Photography and Web Site Design (for “Ranop Subhawong Design”—located at http://www.ranopsubhawong.com) and a Silver STAR Award for “Rediscovering Home Land.”

His work experience includes designing the Web site of the Royal Thai Air Attache.
