Thank you to everyone who submitted an original poem about Reykjavik for our ‘Get Creative for #DesignMarch’ contest! In celebration of the first day of DesignMarch 2014, we’re announcing the grand prize winner. The votes are in and we are excited to congratulate our winner Jessica! Read Jessica’s poem below:
Street art gives way to steaming monk fish and brown sauced hotdogs
That even Presidents adore.
Technicolor facades light up the winter days
Shielding the wind that makes us huddle like warrior lovers
Jessica will receive a Helm of Disguise blanket from award-winning Icelandic brand Vik Prjonsdottir and an official DesignMarch 2014 tote bag designed by Siggi Odds (a $360 total value)!
