By DeVry University

Congratulations to the 2015 Senior Project Showdown winners! Senior Project Showdown is a national competition of projects from DeVry University’s capstone senior experience. 

A panel of judges comprised of DeVry University faculty and staff determined ten finalists, scored on innovation, real-world problem solving and creativity. Finalists were reviewed by leaders from Microsoft, Cisco, Adobe and Hewlett-Packard, with top honors determined by public voting.

The national champions of the 2015 Senior Project Showdown are:

FIRST PLACE - Soapbox:

Project Description: For our project we were glad to partner with Catie’s Bubbles, a small business located in Forked River, NJ. Catie’s Bubbles produces and sells homemade artisan soaps for wet shaving and a variety of products related to shaving on their website. We saw an opportunity to help bring Catie’s Bubbles brand to the next level by providing new designs for their logo, product labels, website, flyers, business card, thank you cards, an instructional video and t-shirt. We provided 18 labels with an individual color scheme for easy recognition of each scent. We worked closely with the business owner to achieve what he wanted and also collected feedback from his customers through Facebook during our design process. We had an awesome experience working with a real life company and hope that our project will help them grow.
