To introduce WesternU’s School of Veterinary Medicine, we devoted an issue of the magazine to showcasing its humanistic philosophy and its comprehensive approach. I wanted to illustrate the new school’s commitment to honoring the strong bond between humans and animals in everything it does, so I decided upon a background photo of silhouettes of a family, dog included. WesternU’s veterinary school offers equine and farm training, so I included photos to represent those areas as well. The founding dean is shown holding a dog . . . and of, course, we had to have a cat, too. The main strengths of the school are listed on the cover.
