mcd's design

2 copy

this idea could not be any cooler. i saw this post on frida's blog, husmusen and she was kind enough to translate so we could take a look. here's the skinny from frida: "Mc Donalds arranged a design competition in Sweden where people could send in designs for coffee mugs (paper) that will be launched this summer. They later selected a few of them and let people vote on their webpage. 3 winners have now recieved 20,000 SEK as a scholarship, their designs will be printed this summer and one of them will also have their mug/design made in porcelain by the Swedish manufacturer Gustavsberg". i love the idea. so, so fun. there are tons of great designs to check out, so click here to see them for yourself. [thanks, frida!]

I'm sorry, but I cannot advocate anything that McDonald's would do to encourage people to eat their food. This is just pure evil on their part.

well anon, then you don't have to advocate it. it's a contest that brings attention to designers in a really interesting and creative way and i love that. at least they're only talking about coffee here and not a big mac. but ultimately, i think it's ok to look at something sometimes and enjoy the design of it and not nec. get too wrapped up in the politics of it all. it's just a coffee cup competition.

i love the idea of a design competition (even though i too am not a mcdonalds customer).
it would good to see more of this kind of thing - lets hope other companies are watching.
the only other competition i can think of like this (in the UK anyway) is from "formica" who have their 'design a laminate' competition every year.
