A Look Back at Pixels of Fury in 2012

It’s hard to believe it’s been less than a year since we launched our traveling design competition, Pixels of Fury, in conjunction with AIGA. Since last summer, the event has hit cities from coast to coast in the US, pitting designers against each other in a high-speed challenge to see who can triumph under the pressure of a limited time frame and a crowd of cheering onlookers.

In 2013, we’re taking Pixels of Fury global, adding a number of international locations to our constantly expanding itinerary. As we gear up for another, even bigger, year of Fury, we’re taking a moment to look back at 2012 — the year that Pixels of Fury was born, and quickly grew into a design-world phenomenon. Scroll through some of the highlights below, and click on any image for a more in-depth local recap. Then stay tuned for announcements about what — and where — is up next.
