Join the Fall 2020 Creative Challenge: DKyoU Design to show school spirit and promote the university within and beyond our community in your own style!
DKyoU Design is the section Creative Challenge project, co-hosted by DKU Innovation & Entrepreneurship and the Office of China Enrollment Management. Throughout November, participants can create a design on the theme of “DKU.” The preliminary design must be submitted by 11:59pm on Nov. 16. Selected works will go on show in an exhibition at the end of the month.
Participants are not required or assumed to have any background or experience in art and design. We will offer five workshops to equip you with basic conceptual and procedural knowledge. Besides, media and arts professors will provide one-on-one advisory session for project teams. Participants are also free to bring their previous work to participate in the event, as long as it is consistent with the theme of the challenge.
You may choose one of the five tracks below to submit your work:
- Souvenir Design: Clothing, toys, stationaries, etc.
- Graphic Design: Posters, infographics, photography, postcards, etc.
- Video Design: Short videos, MV, stop motion, documentaries, films, etc.
- Event/Service Design: integrating multiple design elements into an event or service.
- Avant-Garde: things that do not fall into any of the above tracks – unexplored, groundbreaking, unique.
The Creative Challenge Exhibition will start on Nov. 30 and will display work from In the Midst of Covid-19 Crisis (spring) and DKyoU Design (fall). Winner of the three awards below will be announced at the opening ceremony, and winning teams will receive awesome gifts:
Most Popular: One first prize, two second prizes, and three third prizes based on popular vote.
Judges’ Choice: Three prizes based on the votes of invited judges (school leadership, professors, and the Office of China Enrollment Management).
