Check Out Coin.Design & Their Design Contest

And now, for something completely different. As you know, there is so much cool stuff happening on .design domains, which reflects the creativity and variety of the larger design community online. One interesting site, Coin.Design, reached out to let us know that they’ve got a design challenge going on and let us know that our readers would stand a great chance of winning. The winning prize is a trip to NYC to attend a premiere Digital Collectibles event, NFT NYC.

The team at Coin.Design have joined forces with the NFT.NYC Digital Collectibles conference in NYC (Feb 20 2019 at the PlayStation Theater, Times Square) to give you a chance to win!

We agreed to let our readers know as soon as we understood that our modest and growing readership would have a winner chosen within its ranks. These aren’t Mega Millions odds. You’re competing against entrants from Porkbun and so you could really win this thing! We feel like this is a real, fun opportunity for our list, just in time for holiday-giving.

The app itself Coin.Design allows you to create unique and shareable designs in the blockchain. There are no design parameters and the design style is completely up to you. Throw some unique designs on a coin and into the blockchain and get ready to head out to NYC!

Take a few minutes and throw your coin in the hat to win! Get started at Coin.Design.

Disclaimer: We understand blockchain is a novel concept and if you’re unclear as to what this whole thing is, you can read more about it in a blog post we wrote here.

In Defense of Beautiful Design

Perrin Drumm wrote a great synopsis of the new book "Beauty" which discusses the idea of beauty in design. What do you think? Should "good design" be evaluated only by its impact or by its inherent beauty?
