Episode 5 is a tough one to include in the designers’ portfolios. It doesn’t fully represent any of the designers work. It started as Andrea’s design but she left many major final decisions to the contestants, so I don’t think it ended up as her design. Meanwhile, all the other contestants were basically carrying out what they interpreted to be her design. But, for consistency’s sake, here goes:
Do we see any trends or signature styles coming through? Who works better on their own and who seems to benefit from working with a team? This isn’t about wins or losses, or lamenting who has been “latered” and who is still here. All the designers have worked very hard and deserve kudos for their labors. It can’t be easy being on the first season of any reality show, but I think the work has often been the most honest because of it.
Beyond the challenges, gimmicks and personality, there is the work.
Take a look at each grouping as if you’re looking at the work with a fresh eye. Who would you hire? Anyone? Take the poll at the bottom. Comments are welcome!
