2011 Student Brief

The Brief is a student design competition simulating a late night at an ad agency. A design brief was developed by Mike Sukle, Creative Director and Principal at Sukle, for our beneficiary client, The Center for Visual Arts a non-profit exhibition space and interactive art laboratory for Metro State students and the larger community.

Intercollegiate teams were directed by Senior Creatives from the local Design and Advertising community from pencil and paper concepting through digital execution culminating in a client presentation.

Congrats to Green Arrow Project on their win last night and great work everyone!
