“Feed Me” Designers Announced
I am excited to announce the 22 designers participating in the “Feed Me” show this May! Woo hoo! All of these submissions were really extraordinary. They oscillate from being extremely thought provoking to down right disturbing. I can’t wait to watch the concepts come to life for the show.
