coralie bickford-smith + d*s event + scholarship reminder

Good morning! After a weekend full of rest and family time (and turkey), I’m ready to dive back into D*S full time. But before I get going with today’s posts, I wanted to note two quick reminders. First, this Friday I’ll be talking with book designer (and all-around D*S favorite) Coralie Bickford-Smith about books, design and everything in between. The conversation will take place this Friday, December 2nd at 7pm at a fantastic independent bookstore in Brooklyn called Book Court. If you’re a fan of Coralie’s work, design, books or supporting indie bookstores in general, I hope you’ll join us. The event is free and open to the public, and copies of both Coralie’s book and Design*Sponge at Home will be available for sale and signing. More details here.

Also, today is the last day to enter the 2011 D*S Scholarship! $10,000 in prizes is up for grabs, so if you’re student currently working toward a graduate or undergraduate degree in design or art, please click here for more details and to enter. Applications will close TONIGHT AT 6PM EST (PLEASE NOTE THE TIME ZONE IS EASTERN). xo, grace


Oh boy, would I LOVE to be there. You AND Coralie Bickford-Smith? I think I own just about every book she’s designed. Too bad I’m waaaaay over here in Chicago!
