Who can participate?
Graphic design and communication students, faculty/staff, and alumni are invited to participate in this event. You can sign up for a 4-hour shift, multiple shifts, or pull an all-nighter!

When and where is the Designathon?
The Designathon started at 5pm on Friday, November 16, 2018. It was held in the Molly Wiley Art Building on campus, in S-7.

Why is this event important?
Having a strong brand and effective communication is critical to the success of non-profits, however many of these organizations do not have the funding to pay for creative services. Providing pro-bono design helps these organizations carry out their mission and reach a wider audience. It also gives students relevant experience working with clients in a fast-paced environment and a greater understanding of their local community.
