Nominate Your Favorite Designer for the 2017 DXV Design Panel
November 15, 2016
DXV has announced the fourth DXV Design Panel project for 2017. The program that invites leading designers to “Reinvent the Classics” will once again challenge four individuals or small teams to create an inspired design concept using the DXV portfolio of products. The final projects will receive media exposure through print coverage and social media campaigns and will be the DXV national ad campaign in leading shelter magazines. Nominate your favorite designers – you can include yourself – by the deadline of Wednesday, November 30, 2016.
From all nominations, the panel of judges will select four designers/teams whose work best aligns with the four DXV Movements of Classic, Golden Era, Modern and Contemporary. Designers will create concepts, working drawings and renderings as well as detailed material lists in collaboration with the DXV project management team to ensure timely and concise design and execution on par with the designer’s vision. Deadline for all drawings and material lists will be early February. DXV will build the four concepts in the brand’s photo studios in collaboration with the designers and a professional team of project managers, stylists and set builders. The designers will be flown to meet with the team to kick off the project in January/February 2017 and again for the photo shoot in April 2017. The final designs will be professionally photographed, published in the luxuriously printed DECADEFIFTEEN Inspired Resources and will become the national ad campaign for DXV with mention of the designer.
