Michelin announces winners of annual College For Creative Studies design competition

2016 Michelin Challenge Design College for Creative Studies Master of Fine Arts team winners: (L-to-R) Min Sung Kim, Eryu Rocki Shi, and Jonghoon Kim from Team Cambodia

The winners of this year's Michelin Challenge Design competition for the College for Creative Studies (CCS) have just been announced at a ceremony at the A. Alfred Taubman Center for Design Education in Detroit.

Winning CCS transportation students received scholarships and an invitation to display their designs in the Michelin Challenge Design exhibit at the 2016 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), which runs from 16-24 January 2016.

A total of 25 CCS transportation students entered this year’s challenge, which was based on the global Michelin Challenge Design theme of Mobility for All – Designing for the Next Frontier.

The 14 bachelor’s-level students were challenged to create an inter-modal mobility approach for a local region, such as the Detroit metropolitan area, that would enhance mobility in a clean, safe and efficient manner.

The 11 master’s-level students were challenged to design a mobility solution that would best serve the needs of an underserved region of the world. Three individual winners were chosen from both the master’s and bachelor’s classes, and a winning team was chosen among the master’s students.

The distinguished panel of judges for this year’s event were Darren Luke, advanced design manager, General Motors; Christopher Thomas, founder and partner, Fontinalis; Mark Nickita, president, Archive Design Studio; and Bob Miron, Michelin North America (retired).

Tattoo is ok

Howdy all! Exciting news to tell you! Pheeeeew!! First of all, if you havn't already been to the Uncle Allan blog, then you should go there RIGHT now. There is a special offer for bookings in June and July so go check that out. Did I mention... FREE STUFF??? Check it out here! free stuff. There is also some exciting news about walk-in days coming up. There is some cool designs to choose from already but I will be working on new designs while waiting for you so there is a chance to get some flash done before anyone else got to see them. Just as soon as they are drawn, they will be ready to get tattooed! So come see me on Saturday (the 20th) from 12:00-17:00 and also monday to Wednesday (22nd-24th) from 12:00-19:00 Should I get fully booked for any of these days I will post it on the blog or on my twitter so you can always check in before coming here. If no one books in for these days it free for all. Just drop by and get tattooed. I hope to get to do some fun cool tattoos! I have just added a few new originals to the Big Cartel shop so go check them out... and keep an eye on the shop in the near future... there could be prints coming soon... I hope.
I also want to remind you that we got a bunch of cool guests joining us and that there still is some spots available so scroll down to the last post and check them out. Lastly I want to remind you all, that I have opened up for bookings, for the rest of the year. I have realised that most of you who travels here to get tattooed, needs way more that these two month to book your trips and therefor I won't be using that system anymore...Ohhh well... on to the next. I have also realised that there should be room for you who just happens to be in Berlin without months of notice. So give it a shot... send me a mail to see if we can move something around and find a spot. There is a few more things I want to put out there but I am afraid it will have to wait just a few more days... Come back soon, yeah?
