On Tuesday, you got to know a bit more about MIOS and what the designers behind the project have been up to since winning. Continuing the 2014 Design Awards spirit, we bring you an in-depth look at Liminal Spaces, a 2012 Interiors & Exhibitions Student winner. Entering and winning earned them the validation and confidence to keep moving forward with their work. If you'd like to earn the same, get busy and submit your entry, because there's only two weeks left to enter the 2014 program.
Core77: How has Liminal Spaces grown since winning a Core77 Design Award? How has your professional life advanced since winning?
Liminal Spaces: Since winning the award, the next major hurdle for the three of us was graduating from the Royal College of Art—which we all managed successfully! We haven't continued to develop Liminal Spaces, but the thinking behind the project has been extremely influential for all of us in shaping our work.
Professionally Alicja, amongst other things, has been working with Bare Conductive and developing her own work.
Hal and Ben, working with Textile designer Kirsty Emery, have set up their own research and development studio Searu which is focused on the potential of digitized manufacturing. They are proud to count Google Creative Lab amongst their clients and are currently developing their own novel manufacturing system they hope to launch by the end of the year—watch this space!
With a little under three weeks left until the March 20th Core77 Design Awards deadline, we know you might need a little kick of motivation to enter, which you can do right here. Last week, we caught up with 2011 program winner Load Carrier for Labor to see how life was going post-Awards. This time around, we talked with 2013 Service Winners Museum In Our Street (MIOS). Make sure to submit your design before March 20!
There's less than a month left to enter your work in the 2014 Core77 Design Awards program. The entry period closes on March 20th, but there's plenty of time to put together a submission. To give you that extra push of motivation, we're going to feature a number of past winners in the next couple of weeks.
First up, we've got a 2011 Consumer Products/Equipment winner, "Load Carrier for Labour." We chatted with designer Vikram Dinubhai Panchal to see what the life has been like post-awards. Read on to see what winning has done for him and submit your own entry!
We've always been keen to keep students in mind when it comes to our Design Awards program—after all, today's design students are tomorrow's world-changing innovators, entrepreneurs and design superstars, and recognizing them as such has been part of Core's mission since day one. Your fresh, new ideas are exciting to us, so show us what you got! We also know that competing with professionals is tough, so we've created student sections for 15 of our 17 categories. And since we know your budget is tight—we've been there—we're offering a discounted student entry fee of $50 as opposed to the professional fee of $150.
From Consumer Products and Equipment to Interaction and Social Impact, we can't wait to see what you've been working on this year. Submit your work and we might be featuring you next year! Not to mention you'll get this awesome DIY trophy if you're a student winner in your category:
To give you an idea of just what it takes to get your hands on that sweet precision-milled block of aluminum, here's a closer look at two student designs that were honored in last year's program.
The Earlybird Deadline may have come and gone, but that doesn't mean it's too late to get in on the Core77 Design Awards. We announced our first round of jury captains at the very beginning of this year and gave you a look into the professional backgrounds of seven of the people who will be judging your work. To add a little motivational fire to your creative process, we're introducing five more jury captains (with the final five to come). Read up—and take notes—on the jury captains for the Visual Communication, Social Impact, Writing & Commentary, Speculative and Service categories:
