About the FNM Poster & Button Design

Since 2003, First Night Monterey staff has collaborated with CSUMB professor Bobbi Long and the Service Learning class for Publication Design students, engaging the students into a creative competition to design the annual First Night Monterey Poster and Buttons. FNM artists work with the design students from theme concept to design for five weeks in class until selection of the final design. The winner will have the opportunity to produce the graphics for print and web.


And the Winner is....Matthew Lencioni!

Matthew is a CSUMB student from Santa Clara, graduating this upcoming spring with a Bachelor of Science in Communication Design. He realized he wanted to pursue design after noticing it bridged his passions for art, psychology, and his curiosity towards understanding humanity and how he can contribute to the human experience. When Matthew is not designing for school or a client, he enjoys cooking, hiking, as well as pursuing other forms of art like photography, poetry, and mixed media arts, which ultimately further inspires his designs. After graduation he hopes to break into the UX Design field and/or continue with graphic design & marketing, eventually becoming a business owner.
