IDSA-LA presents, S&G 2 "The Business Card Challenge"

Make your mark on Southern California's Design Community. Design anything you can imagine; the only rule is that you use or involve your business card. That's the rules and you can interpret it any way you wish. Bring your entry and plenty of extra business cards and shamelessly promote yourself in a fun and light atmosphere.

Top 3 winners will receive a molded plywood dining chair [ed- like the one above? Oooooo].

This event celebrates the much anticipated USPS issue of the Charles and Ray Eames Stamp Series. Those who are interested, can also attend the official release ceremony at the Eames Office at 850 Pico Blvd. in Santa Monica, CA from 11:00AM - 1:00PM.
