Congrats to Our Facebook Fan Giveaway Winner!

Just wanted to take a moment and say congrats to Marian Rios for being our latest Facebook Fan Giveaway winner! Last week, we asked you – “Who’s your favorite artist and designer is and why?” Marian will be taking home four Art and Design related books for being the one with the most “likes” next to her answer.

With 60 “Likes,” which was far and away the most, here is what Marian said:
“Geth & Pete of Young – One of the more contemporary artists of today, their works are both artistically beautiful and educational as well. I especially love their website It’s simple and you’ll definitely learn something everyday. It inspires young students like me to do the same thing. You should check it out as well :)”

We actually wrote about this project back in September 2009! Love the idea…

Thanks to everyone for participating. If you didn’t win this time, don’t worry. We got more comin’!
