Interior Design Student Wins Halle Berry Contest

January 23, 2017

Veronica SandersAs part of the relaunch of her Hallewood fan page, Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry chose a design by CAPPA Interior Design Junior Veronica Sanders to serve as the logo for the new site.

Berry opened up the design competition via an appeal on her Facebook page, and Sanders’s design was chosen as one of the Top Five Finalists. After a week of careful review and votes from Hallewood fans, Veronica’s submission was chosen as the winning entry.

"I received the call while I was in studio, not knowing who I would be answering,” says Sanders. “It was Halle herself, screaming with excitement telling me how much she and her team loved my work. I was shaking with excitement and actually started crying in class. My classmates thought someone had died!"

Sanders’s winning design will be featured on the official international fan page. She and a guest will travel to Los Angeles later this month for a few days with Halle Berry herself.
