On Friday October 10th, from 10am-10pm, teams of local professional designers will provide PRO-BONO DESIGN SERVICES to ten deserving Charlottesville area non-profit organizations. Each creative team will include two design professionals and one student pursuing a design-related degree. Projects may include branding, brochures, advertisements, schematic building or space renovation drawings, drawings for ADA compliance, or broader site planning.
Applications will be considered from any Charlottesville area non-profits. For-profit, political or religious organizations will not be considered. Ten organizations will be chosen for the Design Marathon based on their needs, type of project, ability to follow through on the project, and positive impact the project will make in the community.
The ten organizations that are chosen will be responsible for any advance work in preparation for the Design Marathon. This may include refining the goals for the project, writing copy, gathering photographs, information or drawings, or encouraging community members to participate.
Organizations chosen to participate in the Design Marathon will be announced on September 1st. Participants will be asked to provide applicable materials by October 1st.
