Brandon Murillo, a junior in the Advertising & Digital Design BFA program at FIT, has been selected to receive the 2020 CT&D Time-based Design Scholarship Award. The CT&D Scholarship was originally founded in 2007 by C.J. Yeh to celebrate excellence in time-based design. It was expanded in 2017 to include a second award category for the excellence in user experience (UX) design and user interface (UI) design.

Yeh and Christie Shin, and the mission is to cultivate and nurture young talents in the field of digital design.
