Each year, AIGA Colorado invites student designers from across the state to submit portfolios to the Robert W. Taylor Scholarship, an annual statewide portfolio review. With the winning prospects in sight, community and award recognition, $1500 and $500 for the first and second prize winners is a nice way to sweeten the deal. Applicants that advance to the second round of review are greeted by professional judges via a design review of their comprehensive portfolio to determine the winning awards. As with every year, the level of passion and creative ambition did not go unnoticed.
AIGA Colorado chose to support two very talented individuals who are the cream of the crop. They have the ability to cause change and will make a great impact on our design community.
Student work was judged by the AIGA Advisory Board’s jury panel.
Michael Signorella, Creative Director of Studio Signorella
Marty Gregg, Owner of ArtHouse Design
and Dave Shelton, Creative Director of David Shelton Design
