MG Design, an exhibit design firm, welcomed two new employees to its award-winning exhibit design team.
Danika Stelton and Clinton Honn are 3D exhibit designers creating exhibits, event and permanent brand environments for MG clients. Stelton and Honn report to MG’s Vice President of Creative Rob Majerowski.
“From our student scholarship program to the time we spend mentoring, the entire MG team is committed to the next generation of the exhibit industry,” said Majerowski. “We know it will be the next generation of designers who add innovation and contribute the new ideas that our industry seeks. Danika and Clinton are talented designers, and we are extremely excited to have them on our team and mentor their growth.”
Stelton graduated from Bemidji State University with a Graphic Design degree. With her first exhibit design class, she knew she had found her specialty and quickly became involved in Bemidji’s Exhibit Design Club where she served as president. She completed an internship at an exhibit design firm, which solidified her commitment to the industry.
In her senior year, Stelton won EDPA’s student Euroshop design contest, which took her to Germany to see her completed exhibit design. It was at EuroShop that she reconnected with MG and Majerowski.
“I knew I wanted to work at MG because it had exactly what I wanted: an open, team environment; a tremendous amount of collaboration, plus a shop a few steps away to see my designs coming together,” stated Stelton.
Honn recently graduated from Iowa State University with an Industrial Design degree. He was first introduced to exhibit design while he was in an internship program in Santa Barbara, Calif. From there, he began researching top exhibit design firms companies and found MG.
He was eager to pursue the exhibit design specialty and work for a firm that would mentor his design aspirations.
“It is a tremendous benefit to design next to a full-service shop where I can watch projects coming together,” said Honn.
Honn has already designed and witnessed his first exhibit come to life on the show floor during his time at MG.
