The Brief, A Student Design Competition


The Brief, A Student Design Competition


November 8, 2017

About the Event

A student design competition meets creative agency all-nighter.

This competition simulates late-night agency frenzy, as creative teams race towards meeting their client’s deadline. Small, intercollegiate creative teams receive a confidential brief, then architect a knockout pitch in exactly 3 hours. Each team — led by a Denver-area senior creative advisor — will work together using traditional concepting methods, and little else.

Top student work wins prizes or scholarships, plus a possible real-life spot in the client’s new advertising campaign.
