How it works

Design Like Mad is Madison's first design marathon
to benefit local non-profit organizations

Teams of student and professional designers are formed to solve some of the most interesting design problems facing a select few local non-profit organizations. Projects include graphic, print and web design, interior design, landscape design, and even architecture. The sky's the limit!

How does it all work?

  • Apply

    Fill out a short application as a student designer, professional designer, or non-profit seeking design aid.

  • You're in!

    Once you are accepted, design teams will be formed based on skillset, and each team will be assigned to a project.

  • Pre-Event Meetings

    Designers are encouraged to meet with their non-profit clients one or two times before the event to discuss the details of the project and the general direction (think about creating a project spec).

  • The Big Day

    On the day of the event, design teams will have 12 hours to complete their design project. Good luck!
