Cal Poly Team Wins Xplor’s Annual Design Competition

Lutz, FL – November 20, 2023 – Xplor International, the worldwide electronic document systems association, today announced the winners of their 2023 Communication Design Competition. The annual contest is open to university students and challenges them to promote real-life application development, while having a bit of fun.

Participating teams each consisted of up to five student members from the same university. A team can only submit one entry, but the university can have multiple teams. Each student can only participate on one team.

The top two teams presented their solutions on Wednesday, November 15th at the 2023 Xplor CCM Summit and the winners were recognized on stage.

Sponsored by Quadient, the winning team was from the California Polytechnic State University’s Graphic Communication Department and included students Keilana Calder, Miriam Gabai, Umika Kuroda and Charlotte Smith.

“The Design Competition is a highlight of our event. The efforts put forth by the students is a testament to their commitment as the next generation of CCM professionals,” says Skip Henk, President and CEO of Xplor International. “I want to thank Cal Poly for participating and Quadient for their investment in supporting this wonderful program.”

The winners were selected based on their team’s presentation and explanation of the redesign to a panel of judges. Additionally, each participant received a complimentary full-summit pass to the annual event where they attended educational sessions and panels and networked with other attendees and our exhibitors.
