This year, CEO of NVISION George Arabian announced that a new scholarship was created to help students and showcase their talents. The scholarship was created to honour NVISION employee Kevin Doherty, who was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer.
“Kevin has been a huge part of NVISION’s growth and creative direction,” says George Arabian, CEO of NVISION. “He is not only extremely gifted creatively, but is genuinely an all around amazing human being who has guided the company and myself in so many ways.”
All of the applicants for this scholarship were asked for references, portfolios, and a short essay to show their creative talents. NVISION was overwhelmed by the talent they saw which made choosing the recipients challenging. However, NVISION has awarded Damiano Perrella and Madison Mesquita the Kevin Doherty Scholarship this year.
Damiano Perrella is pursuing a degree in Architectural Design as an intersection for his love of design and technology. Damiano shares Kevin Doherty’s philosophy of creativity, as he uses design as a way to solve problems. His talents were highly recognized by the NVISION team and we hope Damiano will continue to follow his passion for graphic design and architectural design.
“With everything I produce, I aim to explore the emotive qualities that graphical representation possesses,” said Damiano Perrella. “My dedication to the craft is clear through my involvement with various organizations as a graphic committee member or director of design.”
Madison Mesquita is a student at Western University, completing a degree in Media, Information & Technoculture. She’s an active member of the digital marketing industry, previously as an intern at NVISION. She has shown her dedication to the principles represented in the Kevin Doherty Scholarship; creative problem solving and continual learning.
“I am extremely overwhelmed by NVISION’s decision to award me this scholarship,” says Madison Mesquita. “It is truly an honour and I am so grateful to be a part of an initiative who values education and giving back to others.”
Both recipients have displayed exceptional digital creativity and skills. NVISION will continue to promote the scholarship for years to come to highlight new digital talent.
