Pumpkin Showcase and IDSA Kickoff

Primary tabs

First-year industrial design students, their instructors, and the student chapter of Industrial Designer’s Society of America (IDSA) invite everyone to their Pumpkin Showcase.

Students in the School of Industrial Design will have just finished a 3-day design BLITZ -- a fast-paced exercise to learn skills to take their creativity to the next level. What’s the design challenge? Given one pumpkin, an inspiring designer, and an iterative design process, how can they:

  • Truly exploit the material of the pumpkin?
  • Capitalize on the day/night transformation?
  • Reinterpret a theme?
  • Craft with precision?

Thursday evening, spectators will be able to choose a best-in-show from 60 pumpkins with a monetary vote of a quarter or more. The winner will be announced at 8:30 that evening. The money will help to fund future IDSA student projects.

Everyone is invited to this IDSA fall kick-off event. Meet fellow students, faculty, and practitioners. Play a bit of Pictionary Sketchoff – ID style!  Come to learn about IDSA plans for the upcoming school year, and have a ton of fun!
