It can be hard for graphic design students to get their name out into the industry prior to graduating, but one Oklahoma Baptist University student received the opportunity of a lifetime.

Recently, Starbucks chose a design created by Michaela Bell to represent its 40th anniversary blend in regions across Texas and Oklahoma, according to The News-Star. Bell learned about the contest through working at a Starbucks location as a barista.

"I tried to show Native American art in the patterns on the hills, the colorful sunsets, open sky, swirling wind, red earth and wind turbines for energy production," Bell told the news source. "I may have exaggerated the hills. I haven't really seen many hills since I've moved to Oklahoma from Colorado."

The blend is scheduled to debut in the beginning of 2011. The logo, titled Red River Blend, will be featured on T-shirts worn by Starbucks employees throughout the marketing of the product.

"In my design, I used the things that say 'Oklahoma/North Texas' to me," Bell told the news source.

Employment of graphic designers is expected to increase by 13 percent over the next seven years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Contests may influence more individuals to pursue their passion for design in the industry.
