AAF Spokane needs your creativity to help give back to the community. For our third annual Create event we will be creating some amazing marketing materials for Future Ada, a program promoting women and non-binary individuals in the future of STEAM programs and professions. We’ve promised Future Ada that we can come up with some stellar ideas to help promote this year’s Code in the Dark program, and we need you to help us fulfill that promise!
Register as a team of 3-5 or as an individual (and we’ll pair you up with a kick-butt team) for CREATE. We’ll be putting your skills to the test with a fast-paced competition to design a graphics and collateral package for the Code in the Dark in a single day. Don’t worry, we won’t leave you alone in this endeavor, we’ll have some top notch Art Directors and Creative Directors to help you along the way. By the end of the day, you’ll present your design to your fellow teams and Future Ada and reap the rewards and adulation of all.
The winning team will see their designs become a reality promoting the Future Ada and Code in the Dark 2019, and each team member will get a copy of each of the collateral items produced using their design.
Win or lose, you’ll be helping support an amazing cause and testing the limits of your blood pressure in the process.
Registration is $20 per person. Proceeds of registration will cover the cost for a really cool shirt with the remainder being donated to our non-profit partner, Future Ada.

9am – Coffee & a Creative Brief
Fuel up with your morning brew at the event and creative brief are presented by Future Ada. This is a great time for questions.
10am-noon – Logo concepting and design
Work with your team from thumbnail to final design to come up with the very best graphics to represent the Code in the Dark event. Holler for help from our art directors or the Future Ada representative if you get stuck. By noon, you should be well on your way to producing the required pieces!
Noon-1pm – Peanut Butter and Jam Session
This means lunch (provided) and tunes (also provided). No, it will not just be peanut butter and jam sandwiches, we were just trying to be clever. Jeeeez!
1pm-2:30pm – Collateral Go-Time
Start cranking out some genius collateral using your amazing designs, clever copy and whatever the heck else you want. We’ll provide a list of required collateral as we get closer to the event.
2:30pm – Present Yo Self
Each team will have 5 minutes to present their designs to the client and the competition. Rest assured, there will be a buzzer if you try to take more than your share of minutes.
3:15pm – Judging
In this industry, do we really need to explain what this one is all about?
3:45pm – Winner Selected
Future Ada will select their favorite design/collateral package and we will all hoot and holler for our winners. Huzzah!
4pm – A Well Deserved Fun-fest
Wander downstairs to imbibe in tasty cocktails and celebrate a day well-spent with some new-found colleagues (and rivals?)
6pm – You Don’t Have to Go Home, But You Can’t Stay Here
All events that may or may not transpire after this time are not condoned by AAF Spokane or our affiliates. Stay safe out there, cool cats.
