SJSU Adobe Day 2018 Student Design Competition

This was a design competition for SJSU students only. Using their creativity, students developed a design related to the theme. The only other requirement was that they must use a minimum of two Adobe Applications. Designs must be original and created specifically for this competition. They could complete their design alone, with a partner, or in a group of three. The theme of this year's competition was Find Your Place: Parking at SJSU.

This was an opportunity for the students to let their creativity shine!
