Xplor Completes First Stage of the 2024 Annual Communication Design Competition

California Polytechnic State University and Rochester Institute of Technology Teams Participating

Lutz, FL – April 9, 2024 – Xplor International today announced their annual University Communication Design Competition has just completed its first stage which included participants from California Polytechnic State University and the Rochester Institute of Technology. The contest was open to undergraduate university students and was created to challenge students and promote real-life application development, while having a bit of fun.

Teams were challenged with redesigning an ordinary, bland bank statement to make it more functional, aesthetically pleasing and expand its purpose to include a marketing opportunity. It was the responsibility of the team to research and determine how to integrate assorted options and enhancements while redesigning the statement into a final submission. The statement needed to be accessible via print, web and mobile.

“We are happy to once again have students from Cal Poly competing and excited about the addition of teams from RIT joining the competition this year,” says Skip Henk, President and CEO of Xplor International.  “Special thanks to Quadient, who has sponsored the competition since its inception in 2017. Their support and generosity allow Xplor to support our next generation of industry professionals.”

Between Cal Poly and RIT, eight teams competed. The top team from each university won a cash prize and has earned the opportunity to present their design solution to attendees and our panel of judges at the 2024 Xplor Summit, September 24-26 at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista near Disney Springs.

The winning team, as selected by our panel of industry experts, will claim the 2024 Xplor Communication Design Competition Victory Cup for their university. All participating students will receive a complimentary summit pass to join us for networking and education.
