Design Milk, Adobe, Alessi and Shapeways have partnered up on a design contest called “You Are How You Eat” that calls for designers to reimagine, reinvent and recreate the utensils we use to eat. This isn’t a design contest that focuses on the future of eating or changing how we eat, it’s about considering the current food we’re eating and making new products we can use to better, more efficiently, and even more beautifully enjoy our food. In other words, how can we improve on an existing design or create something entirely new that serves the same purpose.
Your design must:
– Be a completed design product concept;
– Be designed for the average adult male and female consumers in any country, who eat food using a utensil;
– Demonstrate an innovative approach to eating;
– Demonstrate your abilities as both a designer and communicator to convey new ideas through one image, title and description.
GRAND PRIZE: $1,000 cash courtesy of Alessi, 1 year of Adobe’s Creative Cloud Photography plan (includes Photoshop), $200 of credit to Shapeways so you can 3D print your design*, and your design prominently included in a feature on Design Milk.
