This is a little outside our usual subject matter, but Come Up To My Room is an alternative design show, so it makes sense to look for submissions from unusual places.
If you’re not familiar with the show, I suggest you check out the website, which is full of examples of previous years’ work. It features a lot of unique, site-specific and really interesting design, all hosted at the historic Gladstone Hotel.
The official call for submissions is here, and will answer most of your questions. You can ask me any others you may have! The show runs late January 2012, and submissions are due at the end of May, so you have plenty of time to think about it — creativity is obviously paramount.
And please pass this on to anyone you know who might be interested! It’s a great launching pad for new ideas, and anyone is welcome to apply.
