Everybody! We’re sure you won’t believe this, but believe us: this week is over! The Design Department crashed all over Miami Beach, Florida, in December 2008. It rained, it was ugly. But it was also hot, sunny and in a way also whatever you’d expect of a cliché of this colorful city. Before our departure, we hadn’t wanted to believe, but: this trip was about work. We buzzed around Design Miami, were rejected at Art Basel’s doors, but still got good shots from the exhibition. We freaked out at penthouse parties, had burgers for breakfast and cruised those palm tree boulevards. But above all, we saw quite much of the Lombardy Hotel.
So we want to say THANK YOU to everybody involved - our staff, our students, all the people who said interesting, inspiring, funny or thoughtful things into our cameras. Thanks to the people from iad who helped on the web-tech-stuff. We want to thank our Design Department, No Mad and Rado for making this trip possible. We had a blast, and we hope you enjoyed the show!
