We love design competitions, and we love Jell-O. So we're pretty jazzed about combining the two. Here's the pitch:
Revel in the wonder of Jell-O and get inspired by the iconic jiggle. Jell-O is the perfect medium for design in these times of restraint, given its versatility, economy, and availability. But what was once a dessert of jiggling, artful decadence is now most often rendered flat or at most, a wiggling cube on a Styrofoam tray at the end of a buffet line. This is why it's time for a comeback of the Jell-O proportions of old: soaring heights, strange colors, object suspension! To this end, the Gowanus Studio Space is asking designers to take Jell-O out of the cafeteria and break the mold, as it were, on Jell-O molds.
A crack panel of respected judges--including conceptual designers Jason Miller and Tobias Wong, Jennifer Appel of Buttercup Bake Shop, and Thu Tran of Food Party--will announce the winners at 8pm on Saturday, June 20, 2009. The judging and awards ceremony will be held at the Gowanus Studio Space in Brooklyn, NY.
Deadline is June 12, 2009. All info is at the site.
