AU Design show is an annual juried exhibition of selected student work. This effort is undertaken by the student-run Design Club and marketed to current students, alum and local design community. The show is displayed in Katzen Art Center Rotunda space for a period of approximately two weeks. An opening reception is held as a special event at the start of each annual showcase. The show features student work from all levels (freshmen to senior) and in all media (print, motion graphics and ux/ui work).
The purpose of a website is two fold. Before the event it is used for promotion, and after for archiving of student work shown. Because of the variety of quantity and type of work accepted from each student, the website featured a design system that can handle any variation of content length/type per student and/or entry without breaking the integrity of the website design.
