Creative Best 2018

Section 01

It Was The Year 2018

Central Ohio creatives sent their best work off to CSCA to be placed in a time capsule, dreaming of what it would be like for someone to discover their designs 1,000 years in the future.


Secretly, CSCA worked tirelessly with the Columbus Idea Foundry to build a time machine. After numerous failures and a few dodo birds flopping awkwardly around the makerspace, they finally cracked it.


Travel to the future to see what work became a Creative Best.

Section 03

Judges

Before inviting you to 3018, CSCA sent a small expeditionary crew to the future to determine if Earth was still habitable for humans and to find what remained of the time capsule.

They spent hours digging up the time capsule and looking at hundreds of entries.

After multiple trips through time and much deliberation, they determined the winners across 23 categories.
