Looks like very interesting viewing! Anybody going to apply?
I thought design was dead? Oh well…
Ever since the first "american idol " auditions started (“Superstar” here in FRG) I feared that “design” could be the next best hype after everybody is done with “singing” and I am a “Top Model”.
“Designer” is a top notch dream job for lotÂ´s of teens and twens, which are the core audience the TV Stations are loosing at the moment.
Since this Starck show is done with the BBC IÂ´m still slightly hopeful, that it might convey a halfway realistic insight into the business.
Otherwise the effect could be the overkill to an already oversaturated market of “freelancers” and small agencies here in europe when these shows start to collect wannabe apprentice designers in droves.
At this time they will already be casting “star” designers for the same format on the continent.
Who will be the top judge for our castings? Rashid or Rams?
Or both of them in one jury?
I should apply, a vetern of the design wars for over 30 years…lol that would make great TV…and the first voted “out” when i confront stark on his “stuff”.
That would make great TV!
wahoo can’t wait for that show.
Lets hope it sets an example of what good design is.
naw, lets hope its hopeless and funny.
as long as its some good TV
