Design Sprint aims to educate EESTECers on the impact of visual communication by understanding design concepts and implementing them after acquiring the necessary knowledge on design tools. The goal of this event is to give the participants the opportunity to understand the importance of design and how to take advantage of the information provided during sessions in order to contribute to the visual identity of the Association. 

Design Sprint started on the 11th of March and it lasted for 5 days. During this event, the participants acquired general design theory knowledge, learned how to use the Adobe tools and worked in teams on a design project; this year, the project was to create the brand image of an EESTEC event and the results were more than satisfying to see!
