a door to paradise

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

I entered the competition on designboom, a door to paradise.

I see there was 3652 participants! and I just wondered when will the jury decide, because, I will show this competition, with the place, in my "portfolio" to enter a design school.

 

Who entered this competition too?

yeah i have also participated in the competition. I think it's a good opportunity as they will consider to produce some of the designs.

well i can't post it now thoug , i am at work and don't have it here...

i have seen your idea , and it's quite interesting... I think it fits to the theme of the competition.

I think this is interresting, because, for example, I am not design student (soon may be), not designer... And I can enter a world competition like this.

The "bad side" I think, is that in 3652 entrys they are a lot of ideas, and such a competition is a free way to ask people for ideas, in order to copy them and make money.

Thanks for the comment for my door,

3652 participants!!!

 

Now you tell me!

 

I entered also, but with those numbers, I think the 'Door to Hell' is more appropriate!!

I thought about entering it... but real jobs (paid jobs) suck up my time... I actually was more interested in entering Teenage furniture design, but... lack of time made me decide not to. I did participate in the becks competiton tough.... I'm wondering when they are publishing the results of that one.... :huh:

 

It seems the designboom competitions are getting very popular...

Yes I think the designbooms competitions "are becoming" very great, this is because of the big brands they sponsorize them (cocif, beck, macef, nokia, dupont...) and there is some famous designers or people in the jury (peter gabriel, philippe starck, marcel wanders, gaetano pesce..) sorry for my bad english :huh:

They absolutely discovered a niche in the market.... and for the commisioners of teh competitions it's interesting too... thousands of designs for just a few thousand euro's. And the chance of discovering the new Phillipe Starck/Marc Newson..... (which we all hope to be..... :huh: )
