Quadfest Teal Day | PHOTO GALLERY

Hilbert Title 9 coordinator kicked off Quadfest with “Teal Day” for Sexual Assault Awareness month. During this event, students painted a fingernail to spread awareness of the I Ask campaign, championing the message that asking for consent is a healthy, normal, and necessary part of everyday interactions. Teal is the color chosen to represent support for the cause.

Sexual Assault Awareness Month is a campaign to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities on how to prevent it. Teal Day was one of many Quadfest events that gathered the Hilbert Community to personify #TheHilbertDifference. 

Save the Date for Brand Hack 2019

Hilbert is proud to be the location for Buffalo’s design “Hack-a-thon” on January 26, 2019, where professionals and students from the advertising and design community will work together in teams to help build a branded campaign from scratch in 5 hours for a local non-profit.

This event is a great way for students to gain real world experience in a fun and competitive setting, while networking with peers and professionals from Buffalo’s creative community.

Here’s how it works:

Professional team captains will work with teams of 3-5 students with an even disbursement of talent types (design, copywriting, marketing, etc.). Each team will be presented with a real-life non-profit organization in need of assets for a branded campaign. This will include a logo, tagline, and one marketing piece. Teams will have five hours to put together their branded campaign and will present their finished products to the judges, non-profit representatives, and other BrandHack participants.

You can register to get involved with this exciting event on the AAFBuffalo website here. Stay tuned on Facebook and Instagram for more information, and mark your calendars for more exciting Communication Career Week events happening at Hilbert from January 22-26, brought to you by the Hilbert College Digital Media and Communication Department in conjunction with the Hilbert Career Development & Community Engagement Center!
