Exhibition Details

The 61st Annual ADAI Design Exhibition

Since 1958, Art Directors Association of Iowa has hosted an annual award exhibition celebrating designers across Iowa. For over six decades we’ve endeavored to lift up our fellow Iowans, showcasing and awarding our talented peers.

Skills. Tools. Sweat. Late nights. Passion. Ink. Paper cuts. Blood. Pixels. Brainstorms. Research. Vision. Aspect ratios. Killer concepts. Sketches. Math. Conference calls. Killed concepts. Philosophy. Caffeine. Tears. Strategy. All the carbs. Sharpies. Confidence. Shower breakthroughs. Advanced problem solving. Itty bitty budgets. Tutorials. Science. Showmanship. Color theory. Dreams. Client meetings. Nightmares. Psychology. Email chains. Unparalleled creativity. It’s all in great design. Are you?

Join us to celebrate an evening of camaraderie and recognition! Join us in friendship over good food and bottomless beverages! Join us as students and professionals to represent Iowa and inspire one another.
