'Cut & Paste' Head to Head Design Competition
The Cut & Paste graphic design competition will be held on November 19th @ 10 PM at M1-5 (Tribeca, NY). Hosted by MC Bobbito, Cut & Paste will feature a tournament style arrangement pitting eight competitors head to head with a maximum of 15 minutes to work on an assigned design theme. The crowd will be able to view the competition up close and personal through large projection screens. The idea is based on DJ Battles but instead of DJ's spinnin' it'll feature graphic designers armed with Mac G5's, Wacom tablets and such. The competition will be judged by Tristan Eaton (Thunderdog Studios), Kendrick Reid (Comedy Central), Doug Jaeger (thehappycorp global),
Jeff Staple (Staple Design). All eight contestants will receive a cool gift bag, the semi-finalists will also receive a whopping 2GB Mimobot from Mimoco and the winner will receive an Apple iBook for his or her dope under-pressure designs.
Cut & Paste seems like a pretty innovative idea whose time has come. Designer toys are one canvas and outlet for talented designers to get their work seen, appreciated, purchased and enjoyed. Competitons such as Cut and Paste will likely raise the bar for top-notch graphic design and by extension designer toys as well.
