In the fall of 2017, Gibboney and a class of students took on a community partner project, this time working with the Huntingdon Community Center (HCC) to develop their website, branding initiatives and video projects. By working to directly respond to the needs of the client, Gibboney says that these projects have “created hope for local organizations such as the Huntingdon Community Center who has an impact on thousands of families a year but has a small staff and is run primarily by volunteers.” When other colleges teach students similar design skills, mock scenarios are created. This means that students design logos, create posters and make websites that few will ever benefit from. In her Integrated Media Arts Lab, Gibboney enables students to realize how much of a positive impact they can have on their community. When students are able to see their work being used, they gain confidence in their ability to create something beneficial. Gibboney stressed the importance of engaging and consulting with the community partner in order for the projects to be successful.
