Why Enter Spark

Because Spark is a medium that communicates your work, your vision and creativity. Our job is to get it out there. We promote and share your love of great design, craft and innovation. Bottom-line, we are engaged in an ongoing promotion of our designer’s work, both entrants and winners alike. It is our only business, and we love to do it well.

Spark is here to help you get more and do more—improving the individual’s job prospects, strengthening their resume and portfolio credentials and helping them to gain more clients, assignments and interesting projects and problems to solve. For design firms, in-house departments and marketing teams, Spark validates their efforts and investment, enhances their stature and communicates their commitment to sustainable practices.

Spark has a brave and modern outlook on sustainability and resource usage that resonates with young designers and policymakers. We think design can have a strong and positive effect on this world. We believe that great design demands fierce dedication to sustainability. We see design as problem-solving and your work as solutions. We all know things have to improve, and fast. The first step is recognizing that–and the second is exchanging information, ideas and efforts. This is what the Spark design competition is all about. Getting it out there. And reinforcing your marketing and job-seeking efforts. Join us today.
