Colligan User Interface Design Challenge
Ken Kato (InfoGraphics Lab Associate Director) serves as a Faculty Coach and was one of the developers of the the Colligan User Interface Design Challenge.
The competition seeks to inspire University of Oregon students from all programs and classes to create novel graphic user interfaces (GUI). Student teams of 2-5 design a GUI application or system intended for the consumer market. The event results in teams presenting their final concepts/products to a panel of prospective investors and industry leaders. Based on the panel’s selections, prize money is handed out to the winner and runner up teams. The challenge was inspired and sponsored by mobile technology pioneer Ed Colligan (UO ’83) and is presented by the University of Oregon Office for Research, Innovation and Graduate Education.
