Design Roulette: University of New Haven

Explore your creativity with this Design Roulette challenge!

The University of New Haven Student Group is hosting their very own Design Roulette event. For this event, be sure to bring your laptop, tablets, sketchbooks, or any art supplies you prefer.

How It Works
After initial intros, we'll pair contestants randomly. Teams will then spin the roulette to reveal their design challenge. Once all teams have their design challenge in hand, the clock will start! As soon as the clock stops, each team will have two minutes to present their finished designs. After each presentation, the judges will ask questions to help them determine the winners. Contestants will be judged on their thought process and the applicability of their design concept. Detailed game guidelines will be provided prior to the start of the event. The first place winner will receive a prize.
