SPARK JURIES

Every year Spark is honored to present a fresh group of very talented judges. Each bench of jurors is gathered with the help of our Jury Chairs, Advisors and Community members. The Jurors come from across the spectrum of design disciplines, media, educators and experts.  (Click on a Juror’s name below for background information.) Each Jury has teams of experts who specialize in specific disciplines and act as reference guides for the larger multi-disciplinary unit.

The Jurors become Spark advisors as the judging sessions roll on, concluding each day with a robust and useful discussion of the Spark jury process and Spark in general. We’ve also been blessed with several “Jury Mentors” who take especial interest in exploring and establishing best practices for the jury process or and/or a particular category. They include Kit Hinrichs, Principal at Studio Hinrichs, Clark Kellogg, UC Berkeley/Haas, Tania Aldous, VP Design at Corelle and a great friend of Spark and Jury Mentor,  Mike Nuttall, Co-Founder, IDEO

The 2019 juries are now being recruited. Stay tuned!
