Art exhibits can open the eyes of individuals who wish to broaden their horizons, especially when they are free. Two young designers are currently sharing their extensive work at the Drewlowe Gallery at the Studio Arts Building until October 22 in Iowa. They hope to help viewers appreciate logos and typography in the world around them.

Designers Cristiane Cunha and Maria Mandarim met in a graduate program, according to the Daily Iowan. Both women, who are originally from Brazil, relocated to the U.S. to indulge in the culture. Their paths led them toward art and design where the two collaborated to create this exhibit.

"Life has taught me that curiosity leads to knowledge; let's be curious and try new things, explore the unknown," Cunha told the newspaper.

Cunha claims that the University of Iowa motivated and challenged her to explore her interests, thus leading her to engage in the art field. Education programs, similar to the one Mandarim and Cunha enrolled in, can help individuals advance their careers in design.

Graphic design jobs are expected to grow 13 percent within the next eight years alone, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Experience and knowledge can help individuals go further in this field in the future.
