Young Guns

Young Guns is a portfolio competition awarding creative professionals 30 years and under, including designers, illustrators, entrepreneurs, and more!

2012: For the tenth edition of Young Guns, the program abandoned its 50-winner quota, opting to simply award the very best entries, no matter how big or small the class would be. The result: a lean and mean Young Guns 10 class of 34 exceptionally talented winners.

The Young Guns 10 Cube and annual, both designed by YG5 winners Andre Andreev and Dress Code, and hand-lettered by Timothy Goodman (YG7), were made of concrete (yes, a book with concrete covers!) and emblazoned with Roman numeral Xs to mark the class. The ceremony and party took place on November 8, 2012.
