Fifteen years after bringing the art form known as “gift guide” to the Internet we are reaching into our back catalog for a classic edition to remix. In 2012 we introduced *The Seven Designer Phenotypes* to the world both online and in a pair of pop-up stores. Originally populated by our editors and illustrated by Tony Ruth, the guide was a hit. Now, we’re turning the idea over to our community of designers for an updated take on these classic archetypes.
Recognize yourself among these? Perfect, then add those items that you’d want to receive – those that meet your standards for designer-to-designer gifting. Do it by December 17th, 2020, and your name will be entered into our prize raffle.
