Who is better to help students be comfortable in their dorm? Students of course! Umbra sponsored a design competition with students from Humber College in Toronto, Ontario, Pennsylvania’s Philadelphia University and Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY to come up with functional designs that they would want to use themselves. Winning products are on shelf at Target as part of the 2015 "back to school" collection.
Umbra has been creating competitions with design schools for over 10 years, enabling the company to mentor students, train interns and hire exceptionally talented young designers.
