  • Adobe Design Achievement Awards

    The Adobe Design Achievement Awards celebrate student achievement reflecting the powerful convergence of technology and the creative arts. Since 2016 the competition has aimed to be a spearhead for the launching of student careers. The competition - which showcases individual and group projects created with industry-leading Adobe creative software - honors the most talented and promising student graphic designers, photographers, illustrators, animators, digital filmmakers, game developers and computer artists from the world's top institutions of higher education.
  • Adobe ico-D Mentorship Program

    Inspiration, guidance, and reflection are invaluable tools during creative and educational development. In this international program, ico-D partners with Adobe to foster inspired conversation and collaboration between dedicated students and an esteemed design professional.
    • In 2013, ico-D developed the Adobe ico-D Mentorship program and has since been offering it to students worldwide in partnership with the Adobe Design Achievement Awards.

      The Mentorship program aims to discover and nurture new design voices by facilitating a unique form of creative engagement. By pairing international experts with design students, craft, practice and polish is passed on to developing designers.

      In addition, the singular point of view of young designers influences, and perhaps challenges, the practicing professional in what is a meaningful and creative exchange for both.
