The Editors

Name That Design Person!


Two months from today, Americans will celebrate Mother’s Day*. In advance of this holiday, we’ve invited a number of designers to share with us a long-lost kiddie pic. On the 8th of every month leading up to Mother's Day, we’re asking our readers to guess the identity of one featured baby. (See January here and February here.)

We’ll post another baby picture on the 8th of April. The remaining photos will go up on the 8th of May. Write your guess in the comment line, first to guess the correct name, wins a Design Observer T-shirt

Designer Babies

* With apologies to our readers in the UK, where "Mothering Sunday" occurs on the fourth Sunday of Lent, which falls this year on April 3.

Why the apostrophe in "photo's"? Yeah, I know, designers can't spell.

Maybe this should be done like the Sunday Puzzle segment on NPR.
Don't reveal the winner for two weeks, then draw from all those who got it right and that person gets the t-shirt (or whatever).
That would remove the time delay element from it.
