The winning submission

WATCH: Nick Platt, Founder of LO:LA creative agency on Upcomers.

I can’t emphasize enough the value of a student presenting work based on “real-world” creative briefs. Their work for these “real-world” clients will allow them to standout once they graduate. That is why we’re SO excited to partner with UPCOMERS to help get students and young talent the experience we’re looking for at MOCEAN to be part of our growing team!
— Michael McIntyre, Founder MOCEAN

“Upcomers is an amazing creative space where I'm able to connect with current students, recent graduates, and professional creatives. I'm happy to know that I will gain real work experience from real design briefs that will help me succeed as a graphic designer.”

“Upcomers has really given me the chance to grow in my career as a designer. Any student looking to advance with actual experience would benefit from the program. Upcomers is helping me succeed and I am positive that they can help other students as well!”
