Test your Luck in Design Roulette
Are you looking to flex your creative muscles? Do you have a competitive edge? Let's put your skills to the test! Our esteemed judges are waiting for YOU!
In our first-ever "Design Roulette" battle, we're challenging brave designers and critical thinkers to create their best branding and think on their feet. 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.
This event was inspired by the amazing work happening at AIGA chapters across the country. Big shoutout to AIGA DC! #oneAIGA
Registration is required for participation. Detailed game guidelines will be sent to all registrants prior to the event.
