Herman Miller is launching a contest today designed around the theme, â€œFor a Better World Around You.â€? The â€œDesign for Youâ€? contest was created by Hello Design, Herman Millerâ€™s digital agency of record, to build engagement with the furniture brandâ€™s existing and potential customers.

The tiered contest harnesses the power of collective participation and social media sharing to unlock prizes from Herman Miller. The more people who sign up and enter to win, the more prizes are unlocked, such as the Yves Behar-designed Leaf Light and popular Embody chair. Entrants can share the contest link with their friends via email, Facebook and Twitter.
The â€œDesign for Youâ€? contest culminates in a Grand Prize giveaway â€“ custom Eames Rockers hand-painted by commissioned artists, including Josh Cochran, Philip Lumbang, Mark Giglio, Chris Lee and Andrew Holder. The Grand Prize winner will be announced in December.
â€œThe idea of a contest that drives collective participation and allows us to share design with everyone not only reflects our brand but also provides the opportunity to create a unique digital experience,â€? says Bryan Showers, Senior E-Marketing Manager of Herman Miller.
â€œWe were excited to work with artists to bring â€˜for a better world around youâ€™ to life with these Eames chairs,â€? says David Lai, CEO/Creative Director of Hello Design. â€œWe also wanted to create a contest unlike any other to give people a chance to win and experience good design for themselves.â€?
