CON10DERS - GRAPHIC DESIGN SENIOR SHOW THEME -
Derived from: The verb contend. Defined as: to face, cope, or grapple with something. Used as a plural noun to describe a group of individuals. The ten is written in numerals to highlight the importance of the time frame, one decade.
MISSON STATEMENT: As a passionate force contending for smart and effective solutions, CON10DERS anticipate the use of technology in the coming decade of graphic design. This is achieved by thoughtful considerations of what has been and what is to come.
Serving as invitations to our show, these mailers were screen printed and then folded to be mailed as one piece without an envelope.
Designing for upcoming technology is not just about being on the forefront of new technologies it is about fighting for solid design decisions. Rooted in design humor, this series of six screen printed posters was hung around campus as a statement about what is worth contending for.
CONTEND FOR CRAPLESS DESIGN
CONTEND FOR APPROPRIATE STROKING
CONTEND FOR EXPLORATION
CONTEND FOR GOOD PERSPECTIVE
CONTEND FOR GIVING A FONT

MAKE IT BLEED: It is important to take your work at least .125 inches further. Creating good design is about pushing the boundaries and exceeding what is expected not only of the project but of yourself.
