MEET THE JUDGES
MELANIE URIBE (she/her) is a Venezuelan award-winning Creative Director and Assistant Professor at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven. She received her BFA and MFA in Graphic Design, and works at the intersection of graphic design, printmaking, and book arts. Her research explores the role of exhibition spaces in sharing the narrative of immigrants. Melanie is currently focused on digital interactive experiences and experimenting with augmented reality to visually articulate the significance of emotion in highlighting the plight of refugees.
DAVID CARSON (he/him) has transformed the field of graphic design, earning him an AIGA gold medal, as well as recognition as one of the two “most influential designers in 30 years of Apple.” A pioneer with profound influence, Carson’s work doesn’t stick to the rules around image placement, consistent typography, or doggedly flowing copy. His attitude—one he sees as partly underdog, partly “Why not?”—carries through not only his most famous projects like Ray Gun magazine or Transworld SKATEboarding, but also his most recent projects such as a VR design museum, various branding projects, packaging design, and more.
RAKSA YIN (he/him) is a multidisciplinary designer and community builder based in the Washington, DC area. Currently, he is the Lead Experience Visual Designer at Amtrak Innovation, where they are building the future of rail. Prior to that, he led design for state and federal governments, healthcare, finance, real estate, and start-up industries with companies like Community, JP Morgan Chase & Co, Deloitte Digital, and Huge. He enjoys doing digital product design, branding, and custom typography. He is also the AIGA DC’s Chapter President where it is his mission to inspire, educate, and empower the local creative community.
