Competitions and Design Proposals

We allow students to exercise their design ideas through experiences that offer insight and value to their ideas. We treat our programs as opportunities to develop strong personalities in these capacities. Through simple design charrettes, we empower students to unlock their potential. Through discovery we encourage finding innovative solutions.


By pushing individuals to work with colleagues in new ways, in addition to introducing new perspectives, we operate by encouraging ideas to blossom between groups of seasoned designers and students alike. Through this exchange students reach new understanding.

Professional Opportunities

By encouraging professional engagement from students and facilitating those opportunities, we help realize the design world for inquisitive minds. While school can often feel hypothetical, with projects that remain abstract, the input our partners can offer help designers to understand the real placement of their skills in the profession.

Topic Exploration

Our initiatives are built to introduce problems in the real world as examples of opportunity. Through the presentation of design topics that expand knowledge in their respective fields, sponsored students will grow to understand the most relevant issues at the start of their careers.
