NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Graphic design students at Stephen F. Austin State University participated in a creative hands-on project for ABT Medical Inc. to design interactive buttons for the company's business-to-business website.

Students of Danny Anguiano, assistant professor of graphic design in the SFA School of Art, designed the buttons to serve as dynamic links to pages within ABT Medical's website.

"The students' work provides both function and beauty for the medical professionals who frequent the site," Anguiano said. ABT Medical specializes in supplying secure medical records for health care, insurance and patient use.

Three students chosen as project finalists from the graphic design class included DeMarcus Tucker, Lauryn Ricks and Kiara Adair. The company chose Tucker's design to be implemented on the live site.

SFA graphic design students are active with professional internships, hands-on projects and professional competitions. Additionally, the SFA School of Art graphic design area sponsors two professional campus organizations, including AIGA-SFA, the campus chapter of the American Institute for Graphic Arts, and AAF-SFA, the campus chapter of the American Advertising Federation.
