Help Smart Design’s Tom Dair Come Up with Something Smart to Say to Michelle Obama


Just a couple of days ago, we told you about Friday’s upcoming meet and greet at the White House for the annual National Design Awards lunch with the First Lady. Tom Dair, president of the firm Smart Design, has been to the event before, meeting with Laura Bush a few years ago. But now, as luck would have it, he’s headed back, with Smart taking home a prize in the product design category. But before Dair leaves for the White House, he wants to be prepared should he wind up finding himself talking to Michelle Obama. So he’s opened up the floor over at Fast Company and has requested that people send in what they think is the most important message about design he can quickly convey to this very design-focused First Lady. As of this writing, there are only a handful of comments sent in to Dair, so should you have something really solid, maybe here’s your chance to get something transported from your brain to Michelle Obamas, using Tom Dair as your vessel (wow, was that ever a strange sentence).
