Alumni Participate in Cut&Paste Digital Design Tournament

March 02, 2009

On March 7, Pacific Northwest College of Art Communication Design alumni will power through a range of designs in the live design competition, Cut&Paste Design Tournament 2009.

Participating PNCA designers include Communication Design alumna Lisa Kline-Simon ‘08, alumni Nick Cline ‘02 and Jake Hollomon ’08, and current Communication Design student Drew Jasperse.

“Cut&Paste”: will feature Portland’s 2D, 3D and Motion designers facing serious pressure to design with speed, skill, and style as partygoers watch their every move on giant projection screens and cheer them on.

Portland judges include: Aaron Draplin, Rebecca Huston, PNCA Continuing Education Instructor Kat Topaz, Mark Searcy, and Jon Wexler, overseeeing 2D-ers; Craig Wollen, Stacy Dye, David Maddocks, Nike’s Howard Lichter, and Sean O’Connor, watching 3D-ers; and Manny Bernardez, Chris Hotz, Brad Johnson, Robert Lewis and Nando Costa, who will watch motion designers.

Last year, Hollomon won the 55DSL Logo Remix Challenge, part of the 2008 Cut&Paste Competition. Hollomon’s design will be featured in 55DSL’s 2010 spring/summer 10.55 limited edition collection. He also wins a cash prize of 1,055 € (about $1,321). 55DSL is a spin-off brand of Diesel, originally inspired by radical sports, according to its Web site.
