2018 Design Graveyard

The Second Annual Reject Show

Every year designers create countless intricately crafted, well-thought-out logos, packaging and poster designs that never see the light of day. Some are shot down in flames, while others never had a chance to launch. This show is all about celebrating the great ideas that have been buried, and, for one night only, they'll be brought back from the graveyard and put on display. Join us as we honor these creations brief life before they are buried once more.
