In keeping with the inclusive spirit of our second annual design awards, everyone is a winner—or at least everyone who registers for the Core77 2012 Design Awards. As those of you who participated last year already know, registrants will receive a complimentary limited-edition poster (while supplies last). Created to promote the design awards, it not only features the essentials about our program, it also tells the story behind its construction.
Designed by our friends at Studio Lin, who also designed our awards identity, the poster's function is twofold: a call for entries and, on the reverse side, a wall calendar. Displaying the full 2012 year, the calendar highlights key dates and deadlines for the awards program, which registrants and entrants will find particularly handy. Thus, the poster doubles as an organizing tool that captures the ethos of the Core77 Design Awards by recognizing the time and effort that goes into great design.
Furthermore, we'd like to acknowledge the quality of the collaboration and materials that went into the poster itself. Print nerds may be interested to know that the poster uses Mohawk's Superfine Ultrawhite Eggshell 70 lb. Text 2/2 stock, and Pantone 021U and Gold 871U. Rhode Island's Meridian Printing did a fine job of the printing, folding and delivery of this artifact—especially considering that the folding itself is integral to the design, revealing the identity and the making-of the poster in the initial unfurling.
The poster is a wonderful commemorative item for this year's awards program and we have a bountiful supply of these exquisite display pieces. Register early and we'll mail you one to display on your studio or classroom wall. Click here to register today!
