In an effort to help graphic design students gain a global perspective, San Francisco-based firm Markatos Moore has created an international design program called SUMMIT.

Through the program, American degree seekers will be selected to travel to various destinations around the world in order to survey global design trends. The program is slated to launch in June, when a total of six students will travel to the Netherlands to explore the Dutch design culture.

After their nine-day trip to Amsterdam and Utrecht, the students will utilize their observations to complete a project that uses design to solve an issue they see in their communities. These initiatives will be showcased in public gallery exhibitions in Los Angeles and San Francisco this September.

This year's participants were chosen by a panel of judges that includes designers from across the San Francisco Bay area. The students were selected based on their project proposals.

Peter Markatos, co-founder of the firm, told the news source that the program is intended to "give back to [the] community and inspire the next generation of designers to grasp what they can accomplish in the world through great design."
