IAPD 50th Anniversary Celebration - Spring 2015

As we prepare for our 50th Anniversary celebration, we wish to bring together students, alumni, and friends to envision a brand mark that embodies Interior Architecture & Product Design - where we have been and where we are going!


  • Work in teams to design the brand mark and thematic overlay for our 50th Anniversary celebration.  The design will be used for Save the Date cards, Invitations, digital media, etc.; as well as printing on a variety of merchandise from T-shirts and aprons to cups, the heading for posters and other printed materials.


  • Current students, alumni, and friends of IAPD.

The Process:

  • We need you to send an email indicating your interest in participating to IAPD@ksu.edu.  Alumni, be sure to include the year you graduated.
  • You may request a pairing, or we will team up alumni with present students to work together on the graphic submission.
  • Judging will occur by a highly qualified team of individuals and the winners will be awarded a cash prize! All of the submissions will show up in some way during our celebration.


Entries Due:

  • 5:00 PM September 1, 2014.

Details and design parameters for the collaboration will be sent out at the time the teams are announced.


BOXhattan is taking place Monday, July 21 from 8:15-9:30 am as a part of Grandparents University and needs supplies. If you have extra boxes (shoe box size is preferred), construction paper, glue sticks or any craft supplies, please bring them to Courtney's office (303g).
