Flux is a nationwide competition that recognizes outstanding design work produced by students in seven categories: Identity, Packaging, Poster, Publication, Social Impact Design, UX/UI, and Video/Motion Graphics. This year, a jury of creative professionals selected 268 projects. The jury included Reece Quiñones, Dr. Perry Sweeper, and Jenna Zelkowski. A record number of 613 entries were submitted from all over the United States, making the 2023 Flux Student Design Competition one of the largest and most competitive yet. View all the finalists and their projects on the Flux Competition's webpage.

The Best in Show, Category Winners, and Honorable Mentions will be announced at the Flux23 Awards on Thursday, Feb. 8, at BmoreArt in Baltimore, Maryland.
