Hey readers! As you know I’m headed up to ICFF tomorrow morning, and will be tweeting live like crazy on the @designmilk Twitter account. For those of you in NYC and ICFF attendees, we’ve teamed up with a bunch of great blogs and The Standard hotel and Dwell to create the ultimate NYC Design Week contest — it’s called #ObjectHunt.

The Gist

  • 8 top design blogs have gotten together to place vinyl stickers (with permission) around design landmarks of New York City.
  • Throughout Thursday May 13th to Tuesday May 18th, visitors to ICFF and New York can snap these images, Twitpic them with and post on Twitter with hashtag #ObjectHunt.
  • These are entered into a random draw for the grand prize of the Ultimate Design Getaway package courtesy of The Standard hotel, NOTCOT, and Dwell.
  • Stickers are just starting to go up and more will keep appearing throughout the weekend!

The Grand Prize
One lucky winner selected at random will win the following Ultimate Design Getaway package courtesy of The Standard hotel, NOTCOT and Dwell:
