Every Spring semester MICA Design League hosts Clever Claver, an annual event where a select group of graduating graphic design seniors are nominated to give presentations about their degree project, past work experiences, design process, and inspiration(s) to the graphic design community at MICA.
Starting this year we decided to create a fall semester version of Clever Claver for the fall graphic design graduates. Instead of only creating poster flyers to promote the event, MDL designed a variety of promotional materials and gifs to heighten the excitement.
