Join designers from local Universities to participate in a Hackathon for designers, otherwise known as a designathon. What is a designathon exactly? It’s an opportunity for some really creative folks to come together for a great cause and to create the print and digital image collateral for the charity’s annual fundraising event. You will use the tools you know well to make your ideas and creations come to life, as well as learn about how to present your ideas as a simple website. Your designs will inspire many to attend the annual gala.

Teams would consist of 3 -4 designers. A web developer volunteer will be provided to each team. A brief tutorial of basic HTML with templates will be provided. Teams will have 5 hours of prototyping designs and making them available for final review.
