I work for an ad agency called SapientNitro. It's pretty insane sometimes, but it's also really awesome!
I get to do really fun projects like this: Battle of the Hands: Posterpocalypse
It's a design competition that we're doing at Adobe MAX to promote our company and our talented designers.
Here's how it works:
We pick 2 designers sit at the "Battle Zone"
There is a randomizer that picks 3 things:
- Movie Title
- Art Direction
Then it begins: 8min to create and complete a full size movie poster.
Each contestant has a fully loaded Macbook Pro, mouse and/or Wacom tablet.
We do exhibition matches all day on Monday. That night we draw the brackets for the Tournament on Tuesday.
1st place wins a Wacom 22HD Cintiq.
2nd place wins a Wacom Intuos Pro (S)
It. Is. INTENSE! Here's what went down last year when the theme was Band Posters: LINK
If you're going to Adobe MAX, you wont be able to miss us, because we're the 1st booth you see as you enter and are attached to the Wacom booth.
We're filming the whole thing and cutting a reality-show style video after the event. I'll post it when it's done.
