A winner is chosen! The final three contestants—Ryan Fitzgibbon, Alison Yard Medland and Monina Velarde—present their solutions to the toughest challenge yet: to come up to a design response to civil rights that would inspire, connect with and resonate with an audience. Michael Bierut returns as the emcee of “Command X: Season 2” and the judges are joined by Connie Dyson, communications coordinator for the National Civil Rights Museum.
“Command X,” developed under the creative leadership of Number 17, was hosted by Pentagram partner Michael Bierut and judged by a panel including Bonnie Siegler of Number 17; Chip Kidd, graphic designer and author; Paul Sahre, graphic designer, illustrator, educator and author; and some surprise guest judges. Sean Adams, partner in AdamsMorioka, Inc., acted as the Tim Gunn of “Command X” this year, mentoring and guiding the contestants through the process.
