Top Design – Judging the designs – Episode 5

Episode 5: “Garage Band” – clean, organize and design a “garage for all seasons”
Clients: Bell Family (mom, dad, girl, girl, boy, dog)
Team Challenge – Andrea as lead designer for having the winning design
Budget: $5,100.00
Time frame: 2 days

I’ve got nothing on this one.

Nothing to judge, nothing to say.

Ok, lot’s to say. Basically, once again, there wasn’t time to design or execute a good plan. Andrea’s design plan was selected by the family, which gave her team leader status and immunity. So, no matter how badly it came out, she wouldn’t go home. I wonder, did that effect her desire to motivate her team? If she were actually on the line, I wonder if she would have been so hands off with some of the designers.

The rest of the designers were in the tough position – either be good team players or push their own voice into the project. All were criticized by the judges for their various choices.

As a designer, there is nothing to judge here. The guest judge – Mark Rios of Not Neutral – had nothing really constructive to offer.

Anyway, as I said, I’m trying, but I got nothing. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe with help.

Maybe I’ll see what my blogger friends are saying and I’ll just copy them. You know what they say – imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I’m so bored I’m changing the colors of my text. That’s how bored I am! (Note that I’m using Michael Purple.)

  1. the color commentary is very funny!

    as for the designers choice to either following andrea’s lead or doing their own thing: you are right that this was a no-win situation. in the judging it was very “damned if you do, damned if you don’t.”

    mark rios seemed like a non-entity except to make some ridiculous criticism of matt for merely “organizing” all that stuff in the garage (a herculean feat) rather than “arranging” it. oh please.
