TOMS Shoes Wins Peoples Design Award

Congratulations to our friends at TOMS Shoes who have been chosen, by the people, to receive the 2007 People’s Design Award.

This is a big honor for TOMS. They were up against some stiff competition, including the iPhone, New York’s Floating Pool, Good Magazine, and Global Green’s Efforts in New Orleans. One notable nomination was one of my favorite blogs, Design Observer.

This announcement comes as the close of the Cooper-Hewitt sponsored, National Design Week nears.

National Design Week takes place at Cooper-Hewitt from October 14-20 and is an initiative to draw national attention to the ways in which design enriches everyday life, through outreach to school teachers and their students, and partnerships with design organizations across the country.

Cooper-Hewitt, National Design WeekIf you live in New York City or surrounding area, be sure this would be a great weekend to visit the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, which is offering FREE admission through Saturday, in celebration of National Design Week.
