What will you be personally looking for from the entrants to identify winning work?

I’ll be looking for a sense of realism when reviewing the student's work. It’s important to consider creative solutions for real-life challenges. Although I love a good concept, details in the execution are also key for me. Make sure you consider clear, easy to understand usability, as well as typography and page composition.
