Designathon 2016

25 students. 8 faculty with 24 hours to design and create for 8 non-profits: Designathon2015Over a 24 hour period, Pennsylvania College of Art & Design students and faculty members and countless gallons of coffee will be tapped to create professional-quality design materials to benefit local non-profits during PCA&D’s 8th annual Designathon, scheduled from 6 p.m. Friday February 19 to 6 p.m. Saturday February 20.

The 24-hour Designathon is an annual event held by the college’s American Institute of Graphic Arts Student Chapter (AIGA) that provides professional-quality design services at no charge to area non-profits and to the community-at-large. Students at PCA&D who participate in the Designathon gain real-world experience in creating projects for clients under a tight, 24-hour deadline. They learn that non-profits have very real marketing needs in order to be successful, and strong graphic design on well-organized collateral pieces are vital components in successful communications and marketing plans. More importantly, students experience the value of giving back to the community.

Watch our video!            Non-profits apply to be a Designathon client.
