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.
