Project Manager, Jerry Mangnayi gives us insight to the above mentioned contest.
Unlike submission-based design contests, the Tournament is a battle format where emerging, freelance and professional designers flex their skills before a live audience. It requires competitors to rapidly perform as their computer displays project onto large screens facing the audience. Competition rounds are 20-30 minutes each-fast and furious. It’s a dance of visual artistry accompanied by Dj Music band a host Mc in each tournament, rival designers are put in the spot- light. Given a theme on which to base their design, they work on stage under a huge projection screen that shows exactly what they are penciling, penning, erasing, cutting and pasting. This may sound nerve- wracking, and it is but, that is exactly what makes the Digital Design tournament so exciting.
