A reception takes place February 17 from 7 to 9 p.m. The designers will discuss their work at a symposium in Timken Lecture Hall on February 18 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The exhibition and symposium are free and open to the public.
Designers in the exhibition include Ayako Akazawa of Chronicle Books, Bryan Burkhart of modernhouse, G.

The Sputnik program was established in 1995 to create the college's print materials. Today, under the direction of staff and faculty advisors, CCA graphic design students produce 70 to 80 print and web projects for the college each year. In 2004, the e-Sputnik class designed this website.
The Sputnik X group show and symposium are sponsored by the Graphic Design Program.
