In response to the dearth of American design, the organizers behind the 2009 season of Design Miami are soliciting portfolios from designers throughout the region. From the Carribean to South America to Central America and North America, the project seeks portfolios of "high quality, high concept objects-for-use made through handcrafted, high-tech and/or experimental processes," as well as "from emerging, experimental architects."
For your chance to put America on the map and be part of Design Miami, send portfolios, postmarked no later than 1 September 2009, to the below address.
