Design/Spring, the emerging design professionals group in Eugene, Oregon, invites everyone who may be interested to participate in 10square, a design slam where ten designers will each present ten slides in rapid-fire fashion.

Design/Spring is producing 10square as its contribution to the 2010 AIA Northwest & Pacific Region Conference. The event will be hosted at Cosmic Pizza in Eugene on Friday, October 15, 2010 starting at 9:00 PM. Cosmic Pizza is located at 8th & Charnelton in downtown Eugene.

If you would like to participate in 10square, fill out the Call for Entries form and email it to Gabe Greiner by Friday, September 24th. If you would like more information please email Gabe at

The concept of 10square is similar to the PechaKucha nights that are produced around the world as a venue for young designers to meet, show their work, exchange ideas, and network. The key is a format that keeps presentations concise, fast-paced and entertaining.

The 10square presentation format will be as follows:
  • Each presentation will consist of exactly 10 PowerPoint slides
  • Each slide can contain images or text (or both) but no animation, video or music
  • The total presentation time will be five (5) minutes. Each slide will be timed to change every thirty (30) seconds
Kudos to Design/Spring for organizing an important evening that is certain to entertain, enlighten, and educate.
