Ardica's Power to the People Design Contest 2009

power-to-the-peopleEveryone needs power. In this case, we are talking about portable battery power.

Ardica, the makers of the Moshi rechargeable power system, is announcing an open call to designers to enter its Power to the People Design Contest.

Graphic Design

Ardica wants sketches and written descriptions of your product concept that will use its Ardica Moshi portable power system in a unique and practical way.

Maybe you can devise a shoe that warms up your feet in cold weather or invent a portable electric stove for outdoor cooking. It's all up to your imagination.

But one thing to remember; your idea has to be feasible and useful. So if you have a concept about a portable underwater electric basket weaving machine, it probably won't meet the parameters of the contest.

gavelJudging of entries will be weighed on the following criteria:

  • 40% Marketability/Practicality/Functionality
  • 30% Creativity/Originality/Innovation/Differentiation
  • 20% Feasibility/Manufacturability
  • 10% Overall elegance of the design
