This graphic design-centric scholarship asks you to create a graphic that explains your genius way to remove 1-3 kinds of stains from carpet, upholstery, or other surfaces. You might focus on the kinds of stain removal that are useful to students: how to get coffee out of carpet, how to get beer out of upholstery, etc. It’s perfectly okay to feature only one kind of stain removal; you may feature up to three, but more is not necessarily better. We will give extra attention to submissions with unusual stain removal tactics. The most important criterion, though, is fantastic graphic design.The graphic should be easy to read and visually appealing—perhaps something a student would stick to their refrigerator, or a small infographic they might bookmark. The size and shape of the graphic is up to you; it could be intended for web or print. Ultimately, the goal is to make it appealing and useful.
Checklist Submission Rules:
- Create a graphic for emergency stain removal. It may be sent in any of the following formats: AI, EPS, GIF, JPG, PDF, PNG, PSD, SVG, TIF. Do not send a Word document.(Tip: Microsoft Word is not intended for graphic design. If you aren’t sure what to use and still determined to apply, try downloading and learning GIMP, a free, open-source version of Photoshop.)
