Designathon 2021: A 12-hour sprint to create new branding for 8 regional nonprofits
. . .
Monday, March 15th, 2021
The clients (and alumni) were online; the timeframe was 12 hours instead of the traditional 24; and gauging by client reactions Saturday night (yes, there were some giddy tears of happiness), Designathon 2021 was a massive success.
Maddie Lyash ’21, Graphic Design, with her Designathon 2021-branded T-shirts also shown at top.
From letterhead and logos to brochures, website redesign, fundraising materials, event promotion, and even a short infographic video, the teams poured a tremendous amount of work and talent into their projects. They made #PCADProud an action, not just a hashtag, and their work on behalf of these clients will have worldwide reach.
