Command X: Jimmy Dean Challenge

We snapped this shot of the Command X kids in action during their grueling 16 hour cram to rebrand the Jimmy Dean Pancakes & Sausage. We also got this shot, of sausage in action:

During tonight’s presentation the crowd was rolling. Here’s our favorites, by Matthew Muñez:

And Nichelle Narcisi‘s. Yes, that’s a cowgirl riding a sausage on a stick:

In the end, with Michael Vanderbyl standing in for judge Brian Collins, who was called away on official business (emergency clambake?), Elaine Chernov and Ryan Smoker are booted. Big group hug.

Four or Five Things You Need to Know About the AIGA NEXT Conference

In a few weeks we’ll be maneuvering the ole UnBeige wagon over the Rocky Mountains and into Denver, Colorado, home of AIGA’s NEXT Conference. There’s still time to register, although at this point if you haven’t convinced your boss you’re worth the $1050 ($850 for members) there’s not much time left for your door-to-door “Dimes for Denver” campaign.

Seeing as we will be there, and seeing as we seem to know a few things about the innerworkings of AIGA, here’s a few things you should look for when you’re there. Or when you’re sitting at home reading about them here.

· The seven young designers picked to participate in Command X, a live graphic design reality show unfolding in real time and hosted by Michael Bierut are Mike Burton, Elaine Chernov, Kelly Dorsey, Scott Gundersen, Matthew Muñoz, Nichelle Narcisi and, our favorite, Ryan Smoker.

· We’ll be making sure no one scares the students, yakkin’ about this here blog and–are you sick of us yet?–discussing design writing.

· Should you be awake, you can also gather ’round a table with one-half of UnBeige on Friday morning at the unseemly hour of 7:45am.

· There will be a gigantic party Friday night hosted by Design Observer, featuring a triumphant return to the dance floor by William Drenttel.

· If you get bored, there’s plenty of beer right around the corner.
