AIGA Colorado: Elevate | A college mentorship program 2016

AIGA Colorado: Elevate | A college mentorship program May 10th – August 27th with a Poster Exhibition and Silent Auction in July 2016, in partnership with the AIGA National “Get Out the Vote 2016” initiative.

AIGA Colorado pairs students with design professionals to work on projects for the greater good. When two paths cross to collaborate on design for good, amazing things can happen. Students experience working with an established designer. Professionals develop their leadership skills and are exposed to fresh ideas. We give voice to issues that otherwise may not have an audience. We support mentorship programming for students in colleges through the state and we keep the cycle of learning going throughout all the stages of a design career, where everyone walks away better for having crossed paths.

AIGA Colorado: Elevate is meant to enhance our design community by identifying with characteristics of what it means to be a designer.  Design students from Colorado colleges and universities will be paired with professional designers from the Denver design community.

Your challenge, if chosen for the mentor program, is to collaboratively design a poster centered around “Get Out the Vote”, a nonpartisan poster challenge sponsored by AIGA Colorado.  Your mentor will guide your process and support design decisions and your final poster product will be showcased at a gallery exhibition this summer and auctioned off to continue mentorship and education by AIGA in Colorado.
