BANGOR - New England School of Communications Junior Kiera Plante has been working hard this semester, and now her efforts are about to pay off. Plante's graphic design II class was tasked with creating posters for an upcoming short film Acadia Hospital put together, along with the help of Project Aware, about teen depression and anxiety. The film, entitled 'The Road Back,' is slated to be shown at Husson's Gracie Theatre next month. Last week, Plante was informed in front of her classmates and friends that her poster's depiction of the film will be the design Acadia uses to help promote the film.

"I wasn't expecting to win or even get my hopes up because we had done rough drafts and critiques in class, and they were all really well done," explained Plante.

Four other students in Plante's class worked on posters to promote 'The Road Back,' so the movie's director, actors and Acadia Hospital staff had plenty of options to choose from, while Plante's other classmates lent their talents to different area nonprofits.

"What we liked is her explanation of the poster design, which featured the main actors and gave it that human element. And graphically, it included the center line of a road, but it wasn't so dominant that it took over the picture," explained Alan Comeau of Acadia Hospital.

"I was surprised when he [Alan Comeau] called my name and said I won," said Plante. "I'm a marketing communications major, but I've always had an interest in graphic design. Theresa Ayotte's first graphic design class is where I became comfortable with it."

Besides having the winning poster design for 'The Road Back,' Plante also gets the opportunity to work on the film's DVD case and label.

"It's nice having my work recognized, and this will be a great addition to my portfolio," said Plante.

'The Road Back,' which is free to the public, will be shown on March 21 at 7 p.m. at the Gracie Theatre. Seating is limited, so interested individuals should reserve their seats at

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup?
    I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% sure.

    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
