We were bouncing a few ideas around the office and workshop the other day, looking for some inspiration and a new project, when we came across some clear perspex table tops that we had left over from the Irish Blog Awards.
So the discussion then switched to: “We could do this?”, “What if we tried that?” and “Wouldn’t it be cool if we made it like that?” etc. The ideas kept coming like the proverbial snow ball rolling down a hill until we had an avalanche of thoughts and quickly sketched designs.
We decided that we would make two of our earliest ideas, but we would use coloured expanded polystyrene (EPS) rather the standard white colour, to see how they would look without having to paint them.
The reaction to the tables from some of our friends on Twitter was very positive, so that gave us more food for thought. For those of you not familiar with twitter, it is a free micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read messages known as tweets. The tweets are text-based messages that allow up to 140 characters to be sent using a computer or mobile phone.
We thought that, if we were having so many ideas, it would be fun to see what you readers could come up with, so with that in mind, we decided that we would run a competition.
We are asking you to create a table design upon which we can place a perspex top. We will make the winning design and send it to you.
The table can be a logo, name or design of your own making. All we ask is that all the elements connect to one another and that it is approximately 800mm (32″) wide x 400mm (16″) high. It can be virtually any shape, eliptical, rectangular or an irregular design.
You can forward your entries to info(at)madeinhollywood.ie.
Designs will not to be used without the owner’s consent or forwarded to any 3rd parties. We can use most vector-based file types or convert an image file. If you any questions please leave a comment or contact us at the email address above.
