AIGA’s 6th annual Discover Design program concluded with two presentation sessions on April 27th at the MOCA Jacksonville and May 1 at CoWork during Art Walk. More than 10 local high school students participated in this year’s program. Both sessions saw an impressive turnout from the student’s parents and friends.
Students, during both presentation sessions, talked about how they chose their non-profit based on their interest. They explained their concepts and the processes they used to create the final project.
The high schoolers worked on a project that required them to create branding for a mock non-profit organization of their choosing. Students were able to choose from an organization that promotes the betterment of local businesses, groups and/or children’s lifestyles. They spent eight weeks with local Jacksonville designers creatively coming up with a solution for their logos and promotional pieces.
Thank you to all of the students, mentors, and parents for their time and efforts towards this program. We hope that next year you will be interested in participating in this rewarding program.
A special thanks to UNF, MOCA, and CoWork for kindly allowing us to use their space every year. Also, a big thank you to our sponsor, Folio-weekly.
