This has been a phenomenal first-year for AIGA Jacksonville’s Krung Fu Live Design Tournament. While it took some coaxing from its competitors, at first, it truly became a spectacle to witness and enjoy these designers create on the spot. So here we are now at the Semi-Final Round and you can’t help but wonder, “How did we get here?”
With a shared set of 5 pre-determined images from the Krung Stock photo library and 2 pre-determined fonts, each competitor had only 60-minutes to concept and design a graphic in front of a live audience with live, excruciating, play-by-play commentating provided by Levi of The Urban South and Crobar and Greg and Gil of Greg et. Gil.
In the very first match of the Krung Fu Design Tournament, with the theme “Beach Party,” Dennis Eusebio defeated Chad Landenberger securing himself a spot in the Semi-Finals.
In Match 2, Katy Garrison got the win over last year’s Lightboxing Champion, Russel Quadros, with her vision for the theme “Road Trip.”
Stephanie Soden’s interpretation of “Evil Oil” in Match 3 of the tournament helped her get the win over Patrick Carter.
Match 4 of the tournament was an epic battle between AIGA Jacksonville’s President, Varick Rosete, and Vice-President, Karen Kurycki. The theme was “Spay or Neuter your Pet” and it surely did not disappoint as both competitors pulled new tricks never seen before in previous Krung Fu matches – Varick utilizing the camera in his laptop to introduce a new “Karen Kurycki Krung Fu-ing” image, while Karen dazzled the crowd with her animated GIF skills. Ultimately, the match ended in a tie, giving both competitors entry to the Semi-Final Round.
