Student Spotlight: Sande Edwards

NOVA communication design students are awesome!

Haiti—The Day After

One year after the mighty earthquake that devastated Haiti, the small Caribbean country still needs our help. The earthquake literally destroyed the capital Port-au-Prince, which counted a population of 704,766 as of the 2003 census. The Haiti earthquake is therefore considered to be "the largest urban disaster after WWII," as David Meltzer, senior vice president for international services at the American Red Cross, stated in an online live chat hosted by The Washington Post. Still much needs to be done to rebuild the country and ensure safer and healthier living conditions for its inhabitants. How can we, as the NOVA communication design community, help?
