UnBeige Design Haiku Contest Winners

haiku award.jpgThey came. They saw. They wrote design-themed haikus and won tickets to the “New Frontiers of Graphic Design” panel discussion and party tomorrow in New York City. They are Lisa Goldberg and writer Megan Robb, and here are their triumphant haikus:

Off white, egg shell, beige.
Can’t you just call it un-white,
Muji color wheel?
-Lisa Goldberg

O Helvetica
Why so much celebrity?
Call serif rehab…
-Megan Robb

So few syllables
So little ticket money
So much new design
-Andrew Ballantyne

design’s foundations:
circle square and triangle
create sensations.
-Jenny Clash

Your lack of support
for Cascading Style-Sheets 2
is causing headaches
-Darren Chan, who wrote this “during a period of frustration while designing for the web”
