Guiding Principles

The next-generation of designers were asked to consider how their creative ideas incorporate three fundamental principles from the Lexus brand: "Anticipate," "Innovate," and "Captivate," as well as how their design anticipates the needs of tomorrow's society. They were tasked with developing innovative designs that bring fresh imaginative solutions. At the same time, their ideas and designs needed to be captivating and engaging to the audience and more importantly, the assembled panel of esteemed judges.
