If you’re in Rhode Island on the 27th (and who won’t be?!), we just caught word of an event being held at the little-known Rhode Island School of Design. It’s the first of what we hope becomes a big fad, the Graphic Design Debate. Teams of seven members each will take one another on in typical debate fashion, and only one will come out victorious, all to the betterment of the design community as a whole. Will it be Team Douglass Scott? Or Team Fish Bohn? Only one way to find out. Get yourself on a plane, train, or start walking. Here’s the whole scoop:

See Team Douglass Scott vs. Team Fish Bohn in the first RISD Graphic Design Debate! The main event: Doug Scott contends that the computer has created a miasma of mediocrity in design. Fish Bohn responds with the notion that the newly leveled playing field has given rise to a new era of creativity and possibility. What do you think? Come watch these two teams go at it in a verbal melee open to all. Sides will be taken. A winner will be chosen. Who wins is up to you!
