What is a Design Slam?
The design slam is an collaborative and competitive event, where participants are divided into teams and given a design challenge. Each team has approximately one hour to craft a compelling solution. Teams then pitch their designs to a judging panel who selects a winning design. Observers are welcome to watch the proceedings.

About Our Sponsor
appRenaissance: Purveyors of inspired, hand-crafted mobile applications – inventors of ingenious mobile tools and infrastructure.

At appRenaissance, our work harkens back to a time when products were carefully handcrafted. When making something was as much art and inspiration as it was science and technology. Before the days of mass production and robots and uniformity. When each product was a project unto itself. Each product was considered individually and holistically. And each product was a triumph of creativity, ingenuity and craftsmanship. Visit for more information.
