Name Game Winner #2: Dean Meyers

Our second of three grand prize winners in the inaugural UnBeige Name Game contest is New York City-based designer Dean Meyers, who must have sensed our weaknesses for both overachievers and the Fornasetti “Themes and Variations” wall plates we alluded to in our contest announcement. Meyers included with each of his repurposed typeface names—Wurstchen for a dog, Downtempo for a band, and Little Joe for a kid—a specific Fornasetti plate inspiration, which we’ve included below and arranged in dog/band/child order. Meyers and all of our grand prize winners (stay tuned for the third winner, as we’re working to confirm his or her identity) will receive two tickets to’s upcoming Editorial Design 2.0 event or, for those outside of NYC, a design-themed replacement prize.
