Rhode Island is a unique place. Starting the week of October 2nd, 2020, designers will be tasked to create a design highlighting a place, thing, concept, or even a person in/from Rhode Island. What, for you the designer, makes it amazing to live and work in Rhode Island? Be bold. Be radical.

Participation is free, but designers must sign up by October 1st in order to participate. Then they tune in October 2, 2020 to receive specifics they must include in their final design. They must incorporate into their final design to make sure every participant is working in the time allotted.

Due date is October 8th by 12pm. Submissions will be judged by designers and leaders in Rhode Island.
