If you’ve been to HOW Design Live in the past few years, you may have been able to attend one of Shutterstock’s great evening parties. This year will be extra special with the addition of the new Pixels of Fury creative design challenge, a traveling tournament that kicked off last night in Milwaukee and San Francisco. After making a special HOW Design Live stop in Boston, it will move on to Philadelphia.
Shutterstock and AIGA are proud to introduce Pixels of Fury, a national tournament that takes creative inspiration to the next level. The series of live tournaments will take place across the country over the next few months, challenging contestants to create an inspiring poster with images from Shutterstock’s collection at breakneck speed. Keep reading for more details below — we encourage you to attend and get involved!
How it Works:
Each participant will have 20 minutes to produce a poster using images from lightboxes, with one wildcard allowed where they can use Shutterstock Instant to find images and vectors based on the topic of interest. Participating designers will be under pressure as a live audience watches their every move. The live audience can vote on the winner via SMS text. A panel of local designer influences will assist in the selection of the winning designs, prizes include the “Furious Pixel” trophy, a 3-month Shutterstock subscription ($709 value) and a $100 Apple gift card.
Dates and Locations:
The multi-city tour kicks off in San Francisco and Milwaukee on June 14, 2012 and will travel to a dozen cities over the next several months. Shutterstock will co-host the events with local AIGA chapters including Philidelphia and Boston. Below are the dates for our current schedule:
Saturday June 23, 8:00pm to 11:00 pm @ The Estate
Join us for complimentary signature cocktails, dancing and a special edition of Pixels of Fury, a live design tournament. And of course it wouldn’t be a Shutterstock party without the photo booth, be sure to strike a pose before you leave. Don’t worry about transportation, we’ve got you covered with a free shuttle between The Estate and Hynes Convention Center.
