umm.. actually, doesn't nina's design just look like someone picked up an instrument and started playing some notes? Like, the center vertical bar is the starting point, from were someone would first blow into the trumpet. Then the thinner horizontal bars coming out from it are the heavier notes and the swirly lines are the lighter melodic notes. It really is a clever interpretation of the musical challenge and I have to say I like it.. in spite of her rather abrasive personality and heavy handed approach to teamwork. I'm sorry to disagree with many of you.. but i had to say that cuz I really do think it was a good design. ;)

Ok, within watching 10 mins of the third episode of this fifth season of Design Star, I have to add my voice to the many others who have already spoken here, in saying that this season is really, really disappointing.

I think the challenge concepts are in fact very interesting.. compelling the contestants to take inspiration from such varied sources like fashion and music, is quite smart.

But aside from that, nothing else really feels like it works. I miss Clive..his laid back demeanor and his somewhat quirky sense of humor really did give the show cohesion. He was a good bridge between the contestants and the judges.

Also, what is up with the girls vs. guys thing? One episode.. ok, fine.. it's kinda cute. But to continue the teams like that completely takes away from the professionalism of it and minimizes the potential for design collaborations.

This show (old format) was one of my absolute favorite shows. The way it used to be.. from the designers designing their own space to the white box challenge, and all the surprises in between.. was perfect.
So please, please.. go back to it. You had a good thing going.. really.

The best season was Season 2. There was so much creativity and talent.. it was sick.
And I love Color Splash and Myles of Style.. both being among the best design shows currently on HGTV.

Along with Divine Design. But as much as I love Candice.. I very, very much miss Cynthia Rowley and Martha McCully. It really added to the show to have judges who were successful, established professionals in their own fields... and not tv show hosts. They responded to the participants with dignified constructive criticism, respectful of them as professionals, without talking down to them. And because of that, their feedback felt more real and honest from a design perspective. Which I think is perhaps more important that just focusing on how things look on TV. Because if the designs themselves are good, they will naturally translate well in media. Having them as hosts established this show as an authentic competition for real design talent.

So, once again, to those whom this concerns, ...please rework this show.. back to the winning combination of elements it already possessed in seasons 1 and 2.
