Born through the power of a mishap, an unavoidable accident, a glitch will somehow almost always produce our best work. When you are forced to take a step back and re-evaluate, you gain a new perspective. To celebrate these mishaps, the AIGA student group at Mississippi State University is hosting GLITCH, a national juried exhibition open to students. A panel of professional designers will serve as judges: Lauren Albee and Josh Jevons.
A reception will be April 14th in Starkville, MS, where winners will be announced. Accepted entries and winners will also be recognized in an online gallery and a published book.
The entry deadline is March 20th.
