Rebekka Nicolay's Winning T-shirt

JTED @ Flowing Wells graphic design students Andrew Rubio and Rebekka Nicolay are winners of the Old Pueblo Trolley, Inc. (OPT) marketing materials contest.

OPT recently invited Michael Srsen’s graphic design class to create poster and t-shirt designs for the non-profit museum’s marketing campaign. OPT is dedicated to the preservation and presentation of historic streetcars, buses and railroads.

Rubio won for his poster design, and Nicolay won the t-shirt category.

“JTED gives you tools and opportunities to do your best to be able to spread your wings and fly,” says Nicolay.

The contest was the brainchild of Bob Schlanger, a JTED and OPT board member. He arranged to have a restored OPT bus brought to Flowing Wells to inspire the students.

Jerrad McMurrich’s former JTED @ Flowing Wells auto students, Alex Bauerelen and Tommy Ogden, helped in the bus refurbishment as OPT interns. Subsequently, both have earned employment within the industry. Ogden is working with at Prince and Stone Automotive, and Bauerelen is working at Larry H. Miller VW/Fiat.
