College students from around Colorado will again submit their entries to be selected for the interview process as the AIGA Colorado Board searches for the 2015 Robert Taylor Scholarship recipient.
In 2008, the AIGA Colorado Scholarship was created to help young designers who are enrolled in an accredited college design program. It provides a $1,500 scholarship and the newest version of Adobe Creative Suite. Today, AIGA Colorado offers one $1500 and one $500 scholarship, plus a one year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud. The winners of the scholarship should demonstrate leadership within the design community, as well as outstanding work in the field of design.
In 2010, AIGA renamed the scholarship in honor of the late Robert Taylor. His designs, leadership and commitment to the design community fueled inspiration and advanced design in Denver. Mr. Taylor was an AIGA Colorado Fellow Award Recipient, served on the Board of Directors for AIGA and ADCD, and served on the Advisory Board for AIGA Colorado.
Our past winners include: Kalene Thompson (2009), Mia Huang (2010), Stephanie Gibson (2011), Samantha Kogle (2012), Gustavo Esquinca (2013) Shruthi Manjula Balakrishna (2014), and Seth Haller (2015). These young designers have all demonstrated their innovation, creativity, passion and leadership in design as a practice.
