This year’s grand prize winner was Utah State University student Brianne Brooks, whose “Cosmos” wowed judges with designs inspired by the colors and depth of space nebulae. Brooks won a $2,500 NEWH scholarship from Durkan and an all expenses paid trip to Las Vegas to be honored on-site at HD Expo.

DESIGN REQUIREMENTS

Using the CAD file (provided in PCX format) of a standard Ballroom & Pre-function area, create a design solution of your choice considering the following:

  • Ballroom & Pre-function areas are to be designed as separate components, each area divided by transition stripes in the doorways (Transition Strips to be 4″ solid carpet).
  • Ballroom & Pre-function designs are to be different but designed to coordinate.
  • Number of colors not to exceed 12 in total.
  • Please think of each area as your blank canvas, designs confined only by the walls, the most innovative approach would be to avoid using surface patterns with an obvious repeat, with the exception of textural elements used to add detail and layering. We’d like to see how the entire floor space could become one large design.

Submit final patterns with photos or visuals, concept boards, sketches, write up, or other inspiration for PDI (Precision Dye Injected) carpets. Completed package to be sent to Durkan for judging.

Ge Wang – Discussion & Book Signing at Hennessey + Ingalls

Join us Saturday, December 1st at 4:00pm for a Discussion and Book Signing with GE WANG for the new book: “Artful Design: Technology in Search of the Sublime, A MusiComic Manifesto”.

Book Description:

What we make, makes us. This is the central tenet of Artful Design, a photorealistic comic book that examines the nature, purpose, and meaning of design. A call to action and a meditation on art, authenticity, and social connection in a world disrupted by technological change, this book articulates a fundamental principle for design: that we should design not just from practical needs but from the values that underlie those needs.

Artful Design takes readers on a journey through the aesthetic dimensions of technology. Using music as a universal phenomenon that has evolved alongside technology, this book breaks down concrete case studies in computer-mediated toys, tools, games, and instruments, including the best-selling app Ocarina. Every chapter elaborates a set of general design principles and strategies that illuminate the essential relationship between aesthetics and engineering, art and design.

Ge Wang implores us to both embrace and confront technology, not purely as a means to an end, but in its potential to enrich life. Technology is never a neutral agent, but through what we do with it―through what we design with it―it provides a mirror to our human endeavors and values. Artful Design delivers an aesthetic manifesto of technology, accessible yet uncompromising.

Event date: 
Saturday, December 1, 2018 – 4:00pm to 6:00pm
Event address:
