Like peanut butter and jelly

Branded in ETC! Check it out!
“Though business and design work together like peanut butter and jelly in “the real world,” the programs on campus often don’t. “We’re a small school, but there are a lot of faces here I’ve never seen before,” said AIGA President Jeremy Sanford at the event.”

Student teams are fine-tuning their plans as the deadline for submitting the written plan approaches (March 17th). Ventures at the April 21st Showcase will range from paperless transactions to art education in Malawi to networking of commuters to homeless youth in Seattle.

A competition within a competition: BRANDED

Submissions due: February 15th, 2010

Event date: February 20th, 2010

9:00am – 9:00pm

Cost: $10 (for each student)

Overview: This event is an opportunity for Seattle Pacific University students from across campus to collaborate together. The Social Venture Projects that are selected will be worked on by a team of student designers/business students. Each project may require different design related work, but teams will work on branding, logos, style guides, imagery, etc. The event will be a full Saturday (12 hours) and at the end, teams will have multiple design assets that the Social Venture teams can use at their discretion. The groups will casually present their work to everyone at 8:00pm (including friends/family that wish to attend) to show everyone what they created. To get some idea of what we’re talking about, see this link.

How it works: Social Venture Project teams who are interested should write a 1 page paper about their project or submit their business plan by 11:59pm Feb. 15th. The teams can submit this to: brandedaiga@gmail.com. After submissions are collected, the AIGA board will pick at least 6 teams (more depending on design availability) to collaborate with. The $10 fee will cover the cost of food. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided throughout the day. Important- any team that submits their project must be available to work Saturday February 20th from 9:00am – 9:00pm. Teams will then create a brief presentation of their work which they will show the same night at 9.30pm. All team members must be present.

Goals

–        Have design students educate business students, and vice versa

–        Get students to collaborate who may not typically work together

–        Come out with assets needed for the Social Venture Project

–        Have a blast!

Business/Design Teams: Teams will consist of 4-6 design students + all the team members from the specific Social Venture Project. Ideally there will be different types of art students (illustration, studio art, visual communication, etc.) as well as different class levels (soph, junior, senior).

Support Team: This team will consist of 4-6 people not on the business/design teams. They will help with food prep, videotaping, movie editing, and all over run around needs to support the event that day.

Other info: This is a one day event only. Design teams are not required to do any additional work for the project, unless otherwise agreed upon.
