HOLLAND - Stephanie Milanowski of the Hope College art and art history faculty has been appointed to the college's Howard R. and Margaret E. Sluyter Endowed Professorship in the field of design.

Milanowski joined the Hope faculty in the fall of 2009 as an assistant professor of art.  Her appointment to the endowed professorship began with the start of the new school year, and will be celebrated with a formal investiture ceremony on Friday, Sept. 24.

Milanowski has spent more than two decades working with a variety of clients in guiding design ideas from concept to market, experience that she brings to her classroom instruction.  In addition to teaching at Hope, she currently works professionally as an art director, designer and consultant through Grand Rapids-based Stephanie Milanowski Design, which she established in 1999.  Her emphases include digital media products as well as products and design for paper and giftware industries, corporate collateral, identity packages, annual reports, brochures, books, catalogs, and commissioned drawings for corporate and private collections and exhibition displays.

She teaches introductory and advanced design classes at the college.  She has involved her students in preparing projects for local businesses and organizations to provide authentic experiences in bringing client-oriented assignments from initial planning through implementation. 

Prior to establishing her own firm, Milanowski was a senior graphic designer with Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company in Grand Rapids for three years.  Her previous teaching experience includes courses in graphic design at Grand Valley State University, the University of Michigan and Wayne State University.
