Design Corps Rebrand for Growing Up Africa

Growing Up Africa, a nonprofit that educates and empowers underserved communities, was selected by Pratt Design Corps to receive pro-bono design services during the 2016 spring semester. The Pratt Design Corps work included the design of a new logo, letterhead, business cards, and a new website. Growing Up Africa was chosen from Design Corps’ largest pool of applicants ever.

The Pratt Design Corp team included Danielle Franco, Claire Jardin, David Cutter, and Genevieve Womack and professors Michael Kelley and David Frisco.

Call for Entries! MSU GLITCH

February 22nd, 2017

Call for Entries! MSU GLITCH

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.
