This will be my fifth year working on 7x7's sister magazine California Home & Design's CH+D Awards. And if I've learned anything, it's that designers are just like the rest of us—they wait until the absolute last minute to turn in their homework. In this case, it's awards submissions. It is the same every year: The early birds trickle in, then 48 hours before the deadline the deluge begins. Hundreds of binders flood the office, and by the end of it all the Fed Ex guy should get his own CH+D business card, he's spent so much time here.
Designers, Submit Your Creations to California Home & Design's CH+D Awards!
