Co.Design And Porsche Bring You The $20,000 Next Design Challenge

Co.Design And Porsche Bring You The $20,000 Next Design Challenge

THINK YOU CAN DESIGN SOMETHING AMAZING INSPIRED BY THE PORSCHE 911?

IF SO, YOU MIGHT WIN A 911 FOR A YEAR, OR $20,000.

Design competitions are a dime a dozen, so it’s hard to create something that stands out and piques the creative interest of talented designers.

But Co.Design thinks they’ve done just that. Today, with great enthusiasm, they’re announcing the Porsche Next Design Challenge.

The winner stands to get a very nice prize indeed: A one-year lease on a brand-new Porsche 911, or a cash-equivalent of $20,000.

The challenge for you: Design an object smaller than a living room and bigger than a purse, which references three design elements taken from Porsche 911s of the past or present. (But not a car!)

Your work will be judged by two design luminaries: Dror Benshetrit, who has created products for everyone from Cappellini to Target, and Jens Martin Skibsted, founder of Biomega and the designer behind Puma’s superb line of city bikes. (The third judge will be yours truly.)

Far from being a purely speculative contest,Co.Design be giving finalists and outstanding entries a spotlight on their site–highlighting the process and ingenuity, and hopefully giving more visibility. You’ll see these posts roll-out throughout the spring, in the run-up to the deadline.

Are you entering the Next Design Challenge? Here’s something to get your creative juices flowing: A look at great Porsche 911′s of the past and present.To get your process started, they  created a slideshow of famous Porsche designs. And if you want to find out more about the contest, you can click here.

The deadline for entries is April 6, 2012. We can’t wait to see what you come up with. Good luck!

There are thousands of design details that go into creating a Porsche. Each builds upon the rest, creating the car’s essence. Could you take one element of the iconic design to create a brand new thing that embodies what Porsche is, but in an entirely new outlet?
