Live Design Night

Designers compete to package the delicious foods you're eating.

Casa Gusto, importers of all things delicious, culinary and Italian, have sent a call-out to all local creatives so they can test out their design skills in front of a live audience for a $750 prize, MasterChef style (or what I imagine happens on MasterChef style). If you have seen that elephant balancing on a tomato genius canned tomato packaging design, you have seen Casa Gusto — and don't fret, they want something in the same vein, so competitors should brush up on their '20s carnivale.

Fourteen artists and designers, armed with their weapons of choice (sorry, no computers — please direct all digital discrimination complaints directly to the organisers), will endure two hours of bloody design battle to create competing images for the label’s new packaging. From there their fate will be handed over to the judges and audience, so bring your mates — there will be food, booze and DJs, so they can't be too begrudging about it — and the rest of you should just head down to Salt Meats Cheese for Sydney’s first live design night.
