This exciting event offers our graduating seniors in Graphic Design an opportunity to present themselves as professionals to a large public
audience near the end of their college education. The seniors work collaboratively during their final semester to refine their creative vision
and presentation skills.

The PechaKucha presentation format allows the speaker to show 20 slides and speak about each for 20 seconds. The original PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. We have adopted this format so that each graduating senior designer can spend 6 minutes and 40 seconds explaining their work and giving valuable insight into their creative process. This is followed at 1 p.m. by the Open Portfolio Review in which visitors,
having heard the students speak about their work, can experience the physical existence of each student’s strongest work.
