The Graphic Design Special Olympics

06/20/07 :: by brocksteady

So I was thinking. I really want to sponsor the first ever Graphic Design Special Olympics. It’s in a very early concepting phase, but I’m opening this post up for your suggestions on comps and prizes.

Some possible competitions:

- The 5 minute website comp.
- The 5 mouse gesture comp. (This includes clicking, so you better be tight on your quick-key game.)
- Redesign Google homepage while blindfolded.
- Group Competition: Design the most cliched Web 2.0 style website.
- Create a brand identity using the following elements: Comic Sans, Shelley Allegro Script, rainbow gradient, drop shadow.
- Design without visual goals.

Just getting this started. I think we could throw a party w/ a ton of laptops, video projectors, etc and geek out hard on some pixel pushing. Post your other ideas here.

    Uh, actually nevermind. I’ve got some friends in SF who want to do this with me.

    I can’t believe no one had any ideas for this. I pretty much just sent the title of the event to various friends outside of fluid and got a ton of immediate [and hilarious] responses.

    I guess this is why no one got excited about my idea to throw a birthday party for Helvetica. This is just the kind of creativity and enthusiasm we need around here!
