What better time than Spring and New York Design Week for another Design Blogfest party? It's official: Curbed is teaming up with our friends at Apartment Therapy, TreeHugger, The Apartment, MoCo Loco, Cool Hunting, NOTCOT, and Cribcandy for a party next Friday, May 18. You're invited. This time we've partnered with The Apartment, so the party will be at their place in Soho on Crosby Street (between Prince/Spring), from 6-9pm, with goodies from Swich and 10 Cane Rum. (Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.)
To spice things up even more, we're running a competition to decorate the windows of The Apartment's storefront (above).
Contest details from MoCo Loco, which is ringleading this part of the fun:
Design Blogfest Window Competition
The Apartment has kindly offered Design Blogfest their Crosby Street window for the duration of New York Design Week. We thought it would be fun to show some indie design. So, are you a designer with a prototype that we could put in the window? If yes, please upload an image from your website or Flickr, a brief description and the keyword
"designblogfest" using the social bookmark service Wists. The Design Blogfest bloggers will create a shortlist on Monday afternoon after which we'll ask you, the readers, to vote on the best design. Yeah, we know, it's short notice, but then that's what blogs are all about.
- Now, upload an image from your website or Flickr to Wists and tag "designblogfest"
- Monday May 14, 12noon EST, deadline for entries via Wists
- Tuesday May 15, shortlist of finalists, voting begins
- Wednesday, May 16, 12noon EST, voting ends
