Creativity Mentoring Program
Creativity International believes in ensuring our industry’s future design stars have every advantage they need to succeed. To that end we have created the Creativity Mentoring Program. Developed to expose design students to some top creative minds and top international design that they may not otherwise be able to see – they will get an immersive experience during 3 days of intense review of 1,000’s of international design entries and networking with leaders in the industry.
Want to sponsor a student? Contact Kathleen Ritchie 502.797.8408 or kathy [at] creativity awards [dot] com.
3 lucky students who have entered and won in Creativity International’s Design Awards will be selected to receive an all expense paid trip to Louisville, KY during the judging of the Print & Packaging Awards.
They will have the opportunity to shadow our international panel of judges and find out how and why they are scoring the pieces like they are. They will be involved in the Student Best in Show selection and each night at dinner, we will have a local special guest and they will have a chance to network and “pick the brains” of these professionals!
These students will participate in a video diary and blog/Tweet/Facebook about their experiences while in Louisville and during the judging process so you can follow along. Students are also encouraged to bring their portfolios and have them reviewed by the panel. Only students that have entered Creativity have this opportunity so all you design programs & schools out there need to promote this opportunity to your students!
Companies that are also interested in supporting the future of our industry are encouraged to sponsor a student. Sponsor packages are customized according to needs/wants but all will include promotion on our site and in all correspondence with the design schools and students.

Hi! My name is Yong Seek-Min (English name is Smith.)
I was born in Daegu where the hottest city in South Korea.
From the young to now, I’ve been thinking and making my life.
I believe good ideas can change me and the world better.
My major is psychology. In university, my psychology professor always said that psychology is started from love and interest about human. I agree with that and advertising is also.
Now, I’m working on an advertising agency as a intern copywriter and building my career.
My Ultimate dream is to be a Worldwide problem-solver for people and companies.
‘Dig deep and Fly high’ is the best formula to me.
I’m looking forward to meeting wonderful people and great works.
Hello, my name is Lauren Osoba and I am a graphic designer and illustrator. Many types of design interest me, but I especially enjoy branding, packaging, icon design, and illustration.
I currently intern at Design Ranch, a graphic design and advertising firm in Kansas City, MO. In the future I hope to work in a small graphic design studio that specializes in print design.
When I am not designing, I like collecting illustrated maps and city guides, reading design books, blogs, and magazines, watching Wes Anderson movies, and traveling to places near and far.
I look forward to meeting the international panel of judges and being involved in selecting Best in Show for the Print and Packaging Student category.

When I’m not busy sweating the details, I enjoy culinary experiences and the company of my plump feline, Kelli.
