Designs of the year, 2008  DEC 17 2008

Some design heavies -- Paula Scher and Gary Hustwit among them -- choose their design highlights of 2008.

The best conceived, designed, and expressed total idea, ever: Barack Obama's entire campaign, each and every part of it, including Barack Obama.

Two designs I found interesting were the Surface Table (made of carbon fiber, it's only 2mm thick for a 13-foot-long table!) and Boudicca Wode Perfume, which sprays on blue and fades to transparent over time. (via quips)
