Early Designs - launch day

This is a bit more special than my average post. It's the announcement of a project that launches, well, now.

Early Designs is an open project where (hopefully) hundreds of designers, artists and illustrators from across the world will - on the same day - upload pieces and sketches from their college years.

On that day, we'll get a glimpse into the past of 'creative types' everywhere and hear the stories, learnings, late nights and bad hair that made them what they are today.

That day will be March 26th (five weeks tomorrow)
If you'd like to take part, check out this Early Designs pdf for details.

You'll be in excellent company. The following people have already signed up:

Michael Johnson
Ben Terrett
Alex Trochut
Lauren Brown
Alistair Hall
Susanna Edwards
Nathan Cooper
Sebastien Antoniou
Ryan Belmont
Noah Brier
Chris Bolton
Brian Ponto
Will Robinson

And more are trickling in every hour, currently spanning six countries.

I won't go on and on, because the pdf explains things fully. But if you like this idea, do please get involved, get in touch (andy a.t. nowincolour dot com) and spread the word!

And if you have any thoughts/suggestions don't keep them to yourself. On that note, if someone wants to offer to aggregate all the visuals into a nicer online gallery of sorts, that would be wonderful. Ahem.

Early Designs - The College Years. I hope you'll be a part of it.
