Pixels of Fury Competition!

Jess Kirkman

I am so proud to announce that last night I won the Shutterstock 2014 Pixels of Fury Competition in NYC!!
Take a look at the slideshow below (and the video below that) for all the visual highlights:

I was chosen among 5 other designers to compete in a LIVE design event in front of 500+ people with comedian Chuck Nice as the host (love him). Our challenge for the first round was to design a beer label. We had 20 minutes from start to finish to design against our competitors. It was extremely challenging and exciting all at the same time! Below is what I designed for the first round to get me to the finals:

I decided to try in a whole theme into my design, and the first thing that came to my punny mind was SHAKESbeer. Book covers were a huge influence for me with this design. And I think some of my copy was pretty clever too ;) #humblebrag

The night was super fun, I got to represent the female design community and it didn't hurt to win, either. I am feeling so grateful for the opportunity I had last night and hope to have more exciting moments like this in my career!
