Back To School Art Challenge

July 12, 2019 by Displate Artists Team in Art Challenges

The struggle is real – school is coming. 

Goodbye home-cooked meals, sleeping in your own bed and no homework. Hello to new roommates, morning classes, and beer pong. 

Does it ring a bell?

Bring back the studying times and turn the idea of school life into design every student won’t feel embarrassed to hang in the dorm. Satisfy the taste of all types you can meet in the hall: nerds, campus celebrities, party animals, pre-professionals, rich kids, football fanatics, geniuses, and homesick guys. 

Design now so you can veg out later.
