Right now, some of the most amazingÂ innovatorsÂ and thinkers are gathered in San Diego for a medical conference like no other. TEDMED brings together an extraordinary and diverse group of leaders in one place where theoretical ideas are thrown it into the reality of tomorrow’s technologies. This year it’s being held at theÂ Hotel Del Coronado, on Coronado Island from October 25th – 28th.
It was a natural fit for DNA 11 to be there, especially with their speaker line up boasting huge names like Steve Wozniak (co-founder of Apple) and Lance Armstrong. Then, leaders in the genetic sciences field such as Ashley Dombkowski (Chief Business Officer, 23andme) and Eric Schadt (Director, Institute of Genomics, Mount Sinai Medical School).
DNA 11 is so thrilled to be doing an 18′ x 24′ DNA portrait for every speaker. Also, a $100 DNA 11 gift card will be given to each of the 1000 conference attendees.
DNA 11 has partnered up with the creative community at COLOURlovers in an effort to expand our current color palette choices. Get creative, get inspired and get going!
Starting today, the COLOURlovers members will be able to create their own original DNA portrait color combinations online.Â The community will choose ten finalists who will then square off to see which five will be chosen to become a permanent part of the DNA 11 collection.
â€śEach one of our current 25 color combinations was chosen with a specific look in mind. Every color in a DNA Portrait must work well together,â€ť said Melissa Edwards, lead designer. â€śThat’s the kind of attention to detail we’re looking for in this contest.â€ť
The contest will be open and accept entries for the first phase from Thursday, October 20th through Thursday, October 27th, 2011.
1st Place: Your very own, palette-customized, 24 x 36â€ť DNA Portrait, plus we add your winning palette to our line of color options for personalized DNA art.
Runners Up (4): A $250 DNA 11 Gift Certificate and your palette will also be added to the DNA 11 color collection.

Today, DNA 11 is proud to be launching DNA 11 Labs, a community-driven crowdsourcing design platform.
We often receive requests for special orders from customers who love the DNA 11 design and aesthetic. Many of these custom orders have inspired the products we are launching Labs with. Since great minds think alike, it was a natural transition to turn to our customers to help decide whatâ€™s next.
Leading the way is the debut of DNA Rugs, the most unique art youâ€™ll ever walk on.
The big idea behind labs is really about self expression. We are tapping into one of our most valuable assets; the collective hearts and minds of our diverse global client base.
