We Didn't Win So The Next Takeover Is On Hold

The final 4 winners of the Urban Canvas Design Competition have been selected by public Vote. While we did not win, we were happy to see that a similar design, although in bright colors, was selected by the public. I look forward to the shift in perspective and playful manipulation of the rigid nature of construction safety materials propossed by this design as it will be an exciting addition to our public environment. Sadly this means that funding over at PublicAdCampaign is less than desired and another takeover project is likely to be put on hold until funds can be procured to launch another ambitious act of unauthorized civil disobedience. To view all of the winning designs and read more about the winning entries, visit the Urban Canvas website [Here]
