If you live in New York and you’ve been keeping on top of your Flavorpill newsletters, then you already know that this Saturday night the annual Cut&Paste Digital Design Tour lands at Webster Hall. (If not, we’re disappointed in you. And so is your mother.) You might also remember Cut&Paste from the interview we ran last month with founder John Fiorelli.
According to John, one goal of the 16-city, global competition is to help educate the public about the perspiration that goes into good design: “We think learning more about what designers do as part of their process — deliberation, research, experimentation, iteration and technique — would help clients be better collaborators while leading better projects.” And this year’s edition brings both 3D and motion-design categories into play along with the 2D, which means that more up and coming designers than ever are going to get some much needed exposure — in this economy, it’s hard out there for a design pimp.
If you’re not in NYC, don’t despair; you can watch a live Webcast of the competition here. We’ll see the rest of you at Webster Hall, 7:30 p.m. sharp! And remember: it’s *BYOM.
