LOGO WAVE STUDENTS
Enabling design students to stand out through the power of deepened value.
Logo Wave Students partners with universities across the globe providing resume and portfolio value-add to aspiring young designers.
We help young designers stand out to future employers and design clients – plain and simple. As a result, students can more effectively land the design job and projects they always dreamed of.
How it Works
This logo design competition integrates seamlessly into university course curricula to better support students, design professors and the art department as a whole.
A fictional, life-like creative brief is crafted and provided for the design professor and students. Each student then compete against each other to develop their best logo design solution within the parameters of the brief.
Waves run seamlessly within the professors curricula as a graded project within the class. These waves can be incorporated into classes like Branding, Computer Graphics, Typography and Digital Illustration, to name a few.
Logo entries are carefully reviewed by our internationally acclaimed jury with a single winner coming from each wave. A few members of our jury include design influencers and authors like Louise Fili, David Airey and Alina Wheeler.
Each student earning 1st place will earn timeless resume value, add “award-winning” to their title, nab our 600+ page Designer’s Toolkit, RookieUp Design Starter Kit, certificate, digital badges and additional network exposure.
“This unique opportunity gives my students a resumé-building exercise that is truly invaluable.”
– Diane Gibbs | Design Professor, South Alabama University
