We all know what the deal is with the current economic situation within the U.S., kinda seems to be used as an excuse or a quasi-new 'concept' for a lot of artists and designers these days. However- in response to it, Chandelier Creative and Parsons: The New School of Design have teamed up to spark young fresh design talent to help them answer the question that maybe they couldn't figure out? "What are you going to do to F**k the recession?"
The reasoning behind this is to recruit the creative New York community to break beyond the typical cautious restraints and to create some work that is completely unique and to rise above the economic circumstances.
This is also a competition for students of the Parsons: New School for Design Students. The campaign began with a city wide poster campaign, and all creative individuals are encouraged to log on to the website to submit their pieces. However the contest is only open to Parsons students.
