This could get ugly (in a brain-crushingly beautiful kind of way).
Shutterstock challenges "Pixels of Fury" contestants to compete in front of a live audience where they will conceive and create inspiring posters at breakneck speed. Under the gaze of local superstar judges, the pressure is on to answer the big design challenge: Whose inspiration shines brightest? It’s an evening that’s all in the name of good fun, as well as chance to hoist the mother of all hardware -- the Furious Pixel Trophy.
AIGA Reno/Tahoe presents:
Shutterstock's Pixels of Fury
January 28, 2016
Round One: 6:15pm
Graphic gladiators looking to compete:
Nine competitors will compete against each other in a live poster design competition surrounded by a rowdy, battle-born audience. They will face off in 20-minute rounds at computer stations in a party setting, creating original posters with a common challenge.
All competitors exclusively use curated Shutterstock lightboxes and Shutterstock Instant and Spectrum search to create their posters. They can add type, but can’t use any outside images. Everything happens live, with competitors surrounded by the audience while their work is projected onscreen in real time.
Take the plunge and become a competitor! Email Info@renotahoe.aiga.org your behance portfolio and headshot. You'll be notified between January 10-18 if you have been selected to compete with Reno's best.
