Did you enjoy our first #ModernismProject challenge? I know we did! There were so many beautiful submissions, so thanks again for participating. Here’s your second chance to win tickets to Palm Springs Modernism Week. For those of you who are new around here, the #ModernismProject is our first-ever mobile initiative encouraging the global community of modernism fans to express visually what modernism means to them. This week’s theme is…..#PATTERN.
Cruise your city, and scour your local hangouts for patterns that evoke modernism with bold design, graphic grids, and patterned surfaces. Simple, repetitive, and colorful interior screens, wallpaper, tiles, fabric or graphic design are all great examples.
Our special guest judge for this challenge is none other than the awesome design scavenger – Jaime Derringer, founder of Design Milk. This gal and her team provide you with a daily dose of vitamin D (that’s “D” for design!) An online magazine dedicated to modern design, Design Milk offers what’s new in art, architecture, interior design, furniture and decor, fashion and technology. Always fresh + never sour, Design Milk fills your thirsty cup to the brim with design finds from around the world, so drink up!
Jaime Derringer is founder and editor of modern design blog Design Milk , which has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, Time Out New York, San Francisco Chronicle, Singapore Home & Decor magazine, and Real Simple magazine. Design Milk is one of the Google Engineers’ Staff Picks and a Twitter influencer in Art & Design. Additionally, Jaime has been noted as an expert on design trends, speaks on design and design blogging, contributes to a multitude of design blogs and acts as a consultant. The blog is read by many entertainers, hundreds of retailers, magazine editors, and HGTV hosts and designers. Tweets from @designmilk have been featured in Dwell magazine and on HGTV. Jaime believes that modernism involves clean, simple, timeless yet forward-thinking design – so perhaps you can keep that in mind when photographing your patterns!
Twice a month (between now and February), we’ll be issuing a new “challenge” or prompt. Participants are encouraged to submit as many photos as they’d like. An amazing panel of special guest judges will review all the submissions and pick a lucky winner in each category. The winner of this week’s challenge will receive a pair of tickets to the Modernism Week Home Tour on February 17, 2013!
