The Abbi Agency’s Goicoechea honored

Connor Goicoechea, a graphic designer with The Abbi Agency in Reno, won first place at Command N (the keyboard shortcut for “New”), a live design competition sponsored by AIGA Reno-Tahoe and Reno Type.

The competition pitted nine designers against one another in a series of timed matches. In each round, competitors conceived and executed a creative poster, relying exclusively on images from the Adobe Stock website. Entries were judged by local celebrity designers and a decibel meter measured cheers from the audience, who watched the designers work in real-time on display screens.
