WILLIAMSTOWN - The fall 2007 calendar released by the Williams College music department has been named an award winner in a graphic design competition by the Printing Industries of New England. The calendar was produced by ArrowPress Inc. in Pittsfield and designed by Erin Keiser-Clark, a resident of Williamstown. ArrowPress submitted the calendar in the Awards of Excellence Competition held by the Printing Industries of New England. The competition attracted 340 entries from 56 printing and imaging companies. Judging was based on artistic criteria, including clarity and neatness, paper and ink selection, and sharpness and richness of color. The college's music calendar has a dramatic new look. It uses fiery colors, vivid photos, and elegant calligraphy, and displays them against a black backdrop. The calendar opens like a brochure to list the music department's events. David S. Kechley is chair of the college's music department.
