  • Don’t go!!!!!!!

    Shouldn’t design and illustration be all about answering the client’s problem or brief rather than showing off how fast you can whip up graphics in front of an audience while wearing trendy clothes and bling eyeglasses? Isn’t this just about those designer’s who’s egos are the size of their hard disks, and IQ based on mouse clicks per second?

    What about the judges? Will a judge this year please stand up and tell the crowd that its all bull-shite!

    This is really misleading the public about design and creativity in general.

    Diesel is sponsoring? I guess their tagline is to “be brave” right? Let’s all go, oh wait…it cost money to watch this circus.

    Im begging you to say!

  • Wow! You totally miss the point. No, events like this are about the beauty and creativity of design. Who cares about clients? It’s about individuals showing their creative abilities and it provides a glimpse into the process of top designers. That’s definitely interesting and worth a look!
