At the 2016 AIGA National Conference I was selected to compete in Command X: A hunger games style design competition for Designers out of college but under 26 years old.
For the first challenge we had a week, then presented in front of 2000 designers and judges, then two people are cut. They gave us 24 hours for the next challenge, then 2 people are cut, 24 hours for the last challenge, and yes 2 people were cut.
The first challenge was to redesign the Gamblers Anonymous logo.
The second challenge was to redesign the Zappos box experience.
And the the third challenge was to create something to get 18-24 years olds to vote in the election.
I am humbled to be able to say that I won this years Command X, but also made 6 outstanding Designer friends in the process.
