About the Summit: Conference & Student Competition
The Creative Summit was founded by Chris Hill to further the knowledge and spirit of creativity in his students; he taught graduate students for 15 years at Southwest Texas State University (now Texas State University). Now in its 29th year, the Creative Summit has grown into a highly respected student competition and conference that is attended by students and professionals from all over the country. The Creative Summit is a non-profit organization established by Chris's studio, HILL. All proceeds are applied toward cash scholarships awarded for outstanding work. If you have joined us in years past, welcome back. If you've never been before, we're glad you're finally here!

"The Creative Summit is a wonderful amalgamation of imaginative minds. Where else can students overflowing with fresh ideas bounce their best concepts off of design legends over tacos and beer?"
"The Creative Summit helped me realize why I chose to devote my life to art but more specifically Graphic Design. What a gift. Thank you."
Student Attendee, Texas State University - San Marcos
"The Creative Summit is one of those rare events that so perfectly blends professional, academic and social interests, that attending is always immensely enjoyable and consistently beneficial."
