AIGA A10 Juror's Choice: KU's Design Week materials are highly impressive for student work. The team started simply and from there judiciously layered on a remarkable amount of detail and whimsey. What I found most refreshing was the successful mix of restraint and exploration, something not often seen in student work. The result is fresh, energetic, and flexible brand system.
