    About this video

    Sean Adams, serving as mentor, interviews the contestants and offers pearls of wisdom such as, “If you go through life and you tell yourself there’s no such a thing as a bold serif font, your life will be better.” The remaining five—Ryan Fitzgibbon, Bobby Genalo, Alison Yard Medland, Monina Velarde and Katherine Walker—present their redesigns of Cap’n Crunch cereal. Michael Bierut returns as the emcee of “Command X: Season 2” and our esteemed judges are joined by Kelly Dorsey, who competed in the premier “Command X” competition at the 2007 AIGA Design Conference in Denver.
