This Is What We Do on Judging Day+Conference day..
Packed with work during the previous 2 weeks..
Can work till midnight one lo..
So tired sia..
legs aching lo..
Print the presentation of the submissions..
Arrange according to their categories and put up on the panel for judging..
Check videos...Place the prototypes...
But it can be quite tedious if it is to deal with more than 800 submissions which accounted to more than 2000pieces of presentation...
And especially we have to manually paste the velcro on each presentation and panel..
Finally, the judging days..
Those were days whereby Su Ming will be most ka chiong..hehe..
Panicky over this and that..(shhh..dun tell her wor..later kana chopped..)
6 International famous designers..
Werner Aisslinger, Ron A.Nabarro, Tapani Hyvonen, Song Kee Hong, Lu Xiaobo and Kim Chul-ho had specially made their trips down to Singapore to do the judging for the red dot award: design concept 2007..
Prof. Dr. Peter Zec, Ken and Aaron were the moderators for each group of jury..
The jury will go around their categories, debating and selecting which will be eligible to win the red dot award, red dot: best of the best, red dot: luminary and LANXESS prize..
Dressing up in a smart casual attire..
Walking around with our assigned jury..
Well, I was assigned to be take care of the group with Aaron, Ron A.Nabarro and Tapani Hyvonen in it, doing judging for 5 huge categories..
The pace was abnormally slow..
Made me panic lo..
So scared they won't finish in time..
Most of the time, I had to "pester" them to speed up and drag them back to their own categories or chitchat session tp continue with the judging lo..
But luckily, they speed up in the end and everything was done within the allocated timing..
Being the invited jury, they always have a long and sumputous lunch..
Whereas the staffs can only eat at the nearby kopitiam..so sad rite..
Since normally the jury has a pretty long lunch like 2hours..
We have ton of time to do other things...
Me posing..pretty rite???hehehehee..
Wheeeeeeeez.....R&R on one of the product design 2006 winner..
Dun play play k..
Worth 2k plus..
Me & Xinhui

We even tried to go into seductive shots...
The certified FAT seductive shot..
Look at my arm..damn fat lo..
Farah trying to pose the same pose as me..
Sigh..try harder la...
The next candidate..Alicia..
Chey~~slightly better but haiya..still lose out to the poser queen..=P
Girl power again...

Yeah..so free hoh..
envy to have such a job like mine???
After 2 days of judging, we get ourselves busy with red dot academy- profit: by design..
It is a conference whereby the jury will share their views on the design trend and blah..
there were speakers from big companies such as BMW, P&G to talk to the audiences about design-related issue and issue to commericalize a promising concept into a selling product..
Pic of the jury confession going on...
Alicia, our MC of the day..
I thought she had done a great job..
Not many people can do Mc-ing infront of a big group of strangers..
Thought she was brave!!!=)
Me, assigned to take charge at the registration booth...
