Anthony Nardo has a love of the mechanical world, of cars, of mathematics, and of hands-on learning, and he recently combined all of them for a project that usually doesn't involve any of them:

Cosmetics.

And it was a beautiful, glossy hit.

If you're passing by PCA&D on the evening of Feb. 22, you'll spot several dozen students, faculty members, and alumni emerging into the dusk. They'll be bleary-eyed, maybe even a little over-caffeinated, and they'll have have earned every minute of their upcoming spring break naps.

They're Designathon veterans. Each year, in a 24-hour push of brainstorming, designing, refining, production, and presentations, PCA&D students and faculty create free marketing materials -- logos, websites, brochures, flyers, whatever's needed -- for local nonprofits.

The client organizations specify what they'd like to have. Design student teams ask questions, prioritize, and gather info. And, then, between Friday night and Saturday night, College classrooms are humming with students busy creating brand-new marketing campaigns from scratch.

"Students 'get it,'" says Graphic Design Chair Pamela Barby, Designathon's organizer. "They see the power of art and design -- how impactful what they do can be."

After graduating college, she was an in-house designer within the beauty industry, and then moved on to a small design studio creating a variety of print work. She began her freelance career in 2001. A few years later she was extended an invitation to teach at Pennsylvania College of Art & Design (PCA&D) in 2005 and has been an invaluable source of professional guidance and leader of all things in graphic design since her arrival.
