Do David Stark a Favor, Name His New Puppy

0129starkdog.jpg

There are a million contests centered around design out there, but among the good ones, many are either residing in murky spec territory, extremely crowded, or just seem slightly blah. We will share none of those with you, because we only delivery posts of the finest quality. That said, here’s the greatest design contest ever: name David Stark‘s new puppy. Okay, maybe it’s not exactly a “design” contest and maybe more of the “sort of kinda branding” variety, but Stark is a designer, so that seems to fit. What’s more, he isn’t any old designer, he’s the guy we recently crowned “King of Event Design.” He’s put together gigantic, amazing spaces for events like numerous National Design Awards, the New Yorkers for Children Gala, West Elm openings, etc. So you wouldn’t just be naming an adorable puppy (which should be prize enough, you louts) but should you win, you’ll also receive bragging rights, so the next time you find yourself at one of his events, you can tell your slackjawed friends, “Know the guy who did all this? Yeah, I named his puppy. No big deal.” You’re welcome, America.
