9 PM PST (5 AM GMT) BRIEF:
Business cards, those ubiquitous 2" x 3.5" pieces of paper stock, can be the perfect vehicle for invention. Bend one and it becomes a chopstick rest, add some paper clips and a bulldog clip and create an office pet, cut some notches in a bunch and you've got a versatile construction toy.
This 1 Hour Design Challenge invites designers to come up with a new use for the business card. The only condition is that it's gotta be 3D in some way. You can add materials or remove materials, but it should be obvious that your design started out as a business card. Post sketches of your idea, or if you can construct it in an hour, upload photos of your creation. Or embed a YouTube video for that how-to vibe.CRITERIA:
Judging will be based on design execution, strength of concept, and what the judges think is the coolest idea. PRIZE:
The top 5 designs will each receive 1000 Eco-Friendly business cards courtesy of our sponsor for this 1HDC, UPrinting
. Guest judge is Gino Orlandi from UPrinting
