It seems like January is the month of new competitions. SocialDesigner.com is hosting a video competition with the theme Good Things Come To Those Who Wait.
Here’s the design brief:
Create a 1-minute video that shows or tells the story of something you believe is worth waiting for, or, from experience, something you had to wait for that was worth it in the end!
Your entry must include:
• One video of no longer than 1-minute in duration. Warning: Videos that exceed 1-minute in duration will be removed from the website and ineligible for entry.
• A brief explanation of the scenario depicted in your video.
The term “Video” may include stop motion photography or animation, or computer animation.
No logos are to be used in these videos. Videos that contain logos will be removed from the website and ineligible for entry.
Sounds easy!!! Winners get $500 and 500 colored pencils (from a previous contest). So get out your cameras (or computers) and get filming!
All the info you need to enter is right here! Continue reading →
Here’s a great industrial design competition from the design/social networking site SocialDesigner.com.
“The creator of Social Designer, Felissimo is a subscription based clothing and household goods company from Japan who believes that good design promotes happiness, well-being, and adds value to everyday life. The 500 Colored Pencils product introduces their subscription model to the world. Every month a set of 25 pencils is delivered to the purchaser; like a gift that reveals itself slowly over time, the full set of pencils is acquired over a period of 20 months. For every 100 boxes of pencils sent to subscribers Felissimo donates one set to the UNESCO/Tribute 21 DREAM Center initiative, an arts education program run by Felissimo and UNESCO to empower under-privileged children around the world through creative expression.”
You, the designer, are to come up with the “next” product that will be introduced into their subscription based service. Aside from the great design exercise and the noteriety among your peers, why should you enter? Well, the winner(s) get to choose between $1500 in cash or 5% royalty on sales of the product. In addition, Felissimo will donate $500 to the UNESCO/Tribute 21 DREAM Center program. Continue reading →
