about

“Design it Forward” is a one-day student-design competition where students receive a design brief the morning of the competition and students from regional universities work in teams. Think Food Network’s “Chopped”, but for graphic design. Throughout the day students work on creating graphics and a final presentation that they present to a panel of professional judges to determine the winner. The end-product is a logo and/or design project that serves a regional non-profit client. This event puts students in a real-world time crunch and also provides service-design for the region.
