CSULB Design students place 2nd and 3rd in Adobe Creative JAM UX/UI design competition

Posted on April 5, 2019 by School of Art

thumbnail_image002 In March, students from CSULB ended up winning the 2nd and the 3rdprizes for Adobe Creative JAM which was a multi-campus online UX/UI design competition. This specific Creative Jam challenge involved a mobile product that would better the life of immigrants in the United States, be it finding immigrant-friendly service providers, getting assistance with legal paperwork, or simply forming a community and a support network. One of the Creative Jam’s main requirements is a multidisciplinary nature of the teams, ensuring that there are students coming from various college career paths, including design, psychology, computer engineering, and a multitude of others. Because design problems are not reserved solely for designers anymore. Along with students from CSULA and Cal Poly Pomona, CSULB had 54 students participating who were handed out the brief and by the end of the day had to present to their peers and a panel of judges how they plan on tackling the issue at hand. After the first day of the competition, 12 teams (6 from CSU Long Beach, 3 from Cal Poly Pomona, and 3 from CSU Los Angeles) made it through to the finals and got to continue working on their proposed solutions. After a long night of hard work, brainstorming, lively discussions, and relentless yawning, the teams presented to a second panel of judges–and the winning teams were announced.

Congratulations to all students involved!!!
