On Friday, September 11 and Friday, September 18, VCU students can compete with their peers in a virtual Adobe Creative Jam. Adobe Creative Jams are beginner-friendly design tournaments that give students experience solving real-world challenges.

The event kicks off with a presentation by a keynote speaker about their creative process and workflow. Then, students are given a design challenge using Adobe XD software (free trial access will be granted during the Jam) to build their prototype. Next month’s challenges will focus on Covid-19.

Finished projects are presented to a jury of industry experts for a chance to win an Amazon gift card.

Participants will get to test their user experience skills, learn how to use industry-standard design software and build up their resume. Spectators can cheer on their favorite teams while watching the event unfold live (or via replay) on the Adobe Creative Jam LIVE Facebook page at
