Damien MitchellDamien Mitchell of Rayne, an industrial design student in the School of Architecture and Design, was chosen by professionals in the industrial design field to represent the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in the Southern District IDSA Student Merit Award Competition in Atlanta later this month.

His work was juried along with three other graduating senior industrial design students who met the Industrial Designers Society of America requirements for the competition.

Mitchell will compete with students from the University of Houston, Virginia Tech University, Auburn University, Georgia Tech, SCAD and the Fort Lauderdale School of Art.

“Damien is a highly motivated individual who not only has a profound work ethic but also has a wonderful design sense that will take him far into his professional journey of industrial design,” said Dr. Jermone Malinowski, industrial design professor.

Mitchell’s focus is in the design of soft goods.

He is the son of Daniel Mitchell and Mary Jack and is a graduate of Rayne High School.
