Brief for qualifier

The Round 1 theme is Summer Festivals. Create a poster for a food or music festival, or something entirely different like the State Knickerbocker Fair. Doesn’t have to be real, as long as it’s creative and designed like a champ. Doesn’t have to be about food or music, either, as long as it’s a festival and in the summer. Got it? Summer + Festival + Poster = You’re in!

Brief for finals

Round 2 contenders designed to a new theme: Overlooked Destinations. Think Boring, Oregon is actually cooler than it sounds? Not sure why more people aren't vacationing in Guam? These posters highlight far-flung places, towns you've never heard of, and take a new spin on traditional places you already love.
