Built is a Temporary Design Store selling products from local art and design students and Alumni based in Edmonton, Alberta. Every product is created by students who have gained skills in manufacturing and design from their degree in Industrial and Visual Communication Design as well as Fine Arts. These products are often self exploratory projects that students create on their own time, and are unique items that are made to high quality, professional standards.
So far, Built has been featured on Global News Edmonton, CTV News and Dinner Television!
Now Introducing Built x Vingettes!
SEPTEMBER 22–30, 2017
RE-USE CENTRE AT 10004 – 103 A ST. (VIGNETTES HUB)
The Student Design Association is happy to announce that our winter pop-up shop, Built, will be making an appearance this September. In celebration of Edmonton Design Week, the Vignettes Design Series has invited the SDA to host the shop as a part of the week-long event.
EDMONTON DESIGN WEEK
EDW is a city-wide festival that celebrates local talent with the support of the Edmonton Economic Development. From design to painting and performance, Edmonton Design Week invites local communities of all disciplines to showcase their skills as creators.
VIGNETTES DESIGN SERIES
Vignettes celebrates designers and makers, promoting Edmonton’s creative community through collaboration. In one of their most recent works, Vignettes partnered with local restaurants and designers to create a temporary outdoor dining area in Downtown on 104th Street.
Frequently Asked Questions
HOW IS MY PROJECT ASSEsSED?
The Built x Vignettes jury will consist of 4 instructors from the Design program, and four members of the SDA team, with an equal mix of disciplines. Each proposal will be assigned a number and presented anonymously in the interest of fairness, and all work will be viewed in one sitting. Jurors will individually rank each proposal on a scale from 1 (poor) to 7 (outstanding). If a proposal’s average score is 4+, it will be accepted to Built x Vignettes. Applicants will receive an email with further information, such as where and when to drop off your products, and how any unsold product will be returned, along with the juror’s comments. If a proposal is rejected, applicants will be notified by email, and will be provided the juror’s comments. Proposals can be improved and resubmitted to the SDA up to one week after the email notice. Unfortunately, we will only be organizing one juried event with the participation of the design instructors, and the resubmitted work will be juried by members of the SDA team only.
I WANT TO CHANGE MY PRODUCT!!!
For any special cases, questions about VCD proposals, or any concepts for products that do not seem relevant to a category, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Describe your idea to us, and we will let you know what we’d like to see in your proposal.
WILL THE ID/VCD STUDIOS & SDA OFFICE BE AVAILABLE?
Our office and UAlberta campus studios are closed for the summer. As mentioned earlier, we suggest finding third party producers for manufacturing. If you require assistance during the manufacturing of your product, the SDA will be happy to help in any way we can via email!
