Lilah Lichtman ’21 Wins Graphic Design USA Award


Junior Lilah Lichtman earned a 2019 Graphic Design USA Award for her “Fork & Knife” Magazine layout. Lichtman was one of 600 winners selected from among 12,000 entrants, including many professional graphic designers. 

Lichtman created her entry for her Graphic Design visual arts elective last year. “We were given an assignment to design a magazine cover and spread — either existing or imagined,” she said. “I created one of my own, inspired by the style of magazines like Dwell. I called it Fork & Knife, and designed it to be a sophisticated magazine for people interested in recipes and cuisine.”

Lichtman created the unique design for the magazine’s name plus three internal pages, and took all the photos used in the layout. 

No stranger to design competitions, Lichtman also received an honorable mention in the Cooper Hewitt Design Contest in 2018 and 2019. 

Her magazine is on display on the GDUSA website. Click here to learn more about her design and the competition.
