Manifest Urban Arts Festival is Columbia College Chicago's annual celebration of the graduating class. Each year a competition is held for students to submit ideas for the branding and art direction of the festival.
The competition became a bit of a legacy for me in my final two years. Each year I submitted, I placed as first runner up in the competition. Although I never officially won, I gained a lot of citywide exposure and still had a hand in the execution for each Manifest event.
The three stars above are a timeline of submissions and the final product. It showcases an evolution in thought and style through my time at Columbia.
