The SLC Graphic Design Olympics


Registration is now closed.

Have you ever dreamed of winning an Olympic Medal but can’t picture yourself packed into an adult lycra onesie, strapped onto a luge, careening down an ice covered track to your impending, bone shattering death? Same.

Which is why ThoughtLab is teaming up with SLC Design Week to bring you the first even SLC Graphic Design Olympics.


Details. Details. Details.


  • The competition will run during SLC Design Week from October 7th-11th
  • The competition consists of three set design tasks that will be released a week in advance on September 30th
  • Tasks will be due throughout Design Week to be reviewed and scored by our panel of judges
  • The designer with the highest combined score will take the cake as the G.O.A.T. and our grand prize: A beautiful loving cup and a whopping $432.27 culled from sofa cushions, coffee funds and pocket change around the office.


Want to take a peek at our three challenges? See them here.
