Conceive. Create. Take home the glory.
AIGA Reno-Tahoe and Reno Type invite you to ⌘N, the fifth annual live design competition. Formerly known as Pixels of Fury, nine designers compete mano a mano in three 18-minute rounds in this design duel of epic proportions. Each team/competitor furiously conceives and creates original posters in each round as specified in a double top secret creative brief revealed live before each round. All competitors exclusively use the Adobe Stock website, compliments of AIGA partner Adobe, to search for source material to create their posters. They can add type, but can’t use any images outside of Adobe Stock. It all happens under the scrutiny of local celebrity, creative judges and a rowdy, battle-born crowd hooting and hollering in their votes while competitor screens are projected above them in real time.
NEW FORMAT THIS YEAR!
We're switiching it up for 2018! Competitors face the crowd while their designs are projected on the wall behind them. Ah, but wait, there's more! Each projection will be scrambled so that our boisterious crowd won't know who is working on what. The winning design and designer won't be unveiled until the timer runs out and the judges and crowd have made their decision!
Do you have what it takes move pixels?
Email email@example.com your Behance, Dribbble, Website link, or PDF portfolio and headshot by October 31, 2018. You'll be notified November 1, 2018 if you have been selected to compete with Reno's best. IT IS TOTALLY FREE TO COMPETE!
