“Designing for the future: Trends we need to consider now” Blogging Competition is now over

From the end of May till the 1 st of August bloggers around the world were challenged to think about designing for the future. From fashion to architecture, from graphic design to brands or products - everyone working and interested in different fields had been welcomed and could participate in the contest organized by CGTrader. The task was simple and yet required going deeper into the field of interest, provide insights and make own inferences. A number of bloggers joined the contest “Designing for the future: trends we need to consider now” and we had a truly hard time selecting the best ones. So after all these reviews, we are now happy to announce the winners of the contest and share the best of the best blog posts with you.

Catherine Vigil, a 19 year old girl from the biggest city in the state of New Mexico in the US, at this time, probably is ±2220 miles away from her home. And the reason for this is simple – Catherine is studying Biology and Systems Theory at Harvard University. Despite intense studies, she found time to write an essay worth the 1st place in CGTrader’s Annual Essay Competition.
