Second Annual Design Jam


design jam

Special thanks to our sponsor:


The Design Jam is based loosely on the international phenomenon known as Cut and Paste This is an annual AAF-Black Hills event where local designers and the Rapid City community come together to share the design process in an open & engaging style and format.

The Jam works like this. We will have 3 rounds of 3 participants that will battle it out over an assigned creative brief with the same elements, fonts, and photos in each 10-minute timed bout. Each round’s participants were drawn randomly. Our panel of judges will have three minutes to determine a winner from each respective round and that Jammer will move on to our Final Championship battle of 3.
