Graphic designers battle it out at global design competition

Graphic artists and 3D designers will take center stage, as the finals of the Cut&Paste Global Digital Design Championship come to the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City this Friday.

Cut&Paste''s 2009 DDC, the first global engagement sponsored by the online design hub, drew 256 designers from 15 cities across the globe to create works of art in 2D, 3D and motion capture media on stage in front of a capacity crowd roaring and writhing to high-energy dance music from an in-house DJ while a clock ticks down behind them.

The designer''s every move is broadcast on large, real-time display monitors in full view of the audience, then meticulously logged and registered by a unique spyware program that tracks the number of mouse clicks and keys strokes the designers utilize in their creations.

"It''s good fun to…watch the designers on the stage sweating away trying to rock the show in this ridiculously short time frame with a genius idea," claims design blogger Jai Wal. "The crowd is cheering for their favorite competitor while the DJ plays a matching tune – it''s designers performing on stage like rock stars, a great concept."
