The American designer is dead. We didn't read the obituary, but apparently there aren't many designers of note to be found not only in the Unites States but also across the Caribean, Canada, Mexico, and Central and South America.
We are looking for designers whose work includes high-quality, high-concept objects-for-use made through handcrafted, high-tech, and/or experimental processes.
We would also love to receive portfolios from emerging, experimental architects.
Europe keeps asking us for American talent. We're determined to find the "Best in the West" and bring it to the world's attention so they will shut up already.
Yes, Europe. Please shut your bloody trap.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
