Either way, the time has come. At 9pm Eastern Time tomorrow (February 9th), Early Bird prices officially end for the 2016 season. Here's your chance for eternal glory with the 2016 Core77 Design Awards AND an opportunity to save money. Follow the example of these six Winners from the 2015 Core77 Design Awards season that not only took home a personalized Core77 Trophy for winning their respective category, but pocketed a little extra cash by getting their work in before Early Bird pricing ended.
IKO Prosthetic - Open Design - Student Winner
IKO Prosthetic proposes a new mindset from what current prosthetic models are by opening them up to creativity, interaction and fun. Breaking from the drab, at times robotic prosthetics that dominate the market, IKO gives children the opportunity to customize their artificial limb in a way that matches their personality and needs, while allowing for easy socialization with other children. Carlos Arturo Torres submitted this design more than a week before the 2015 Early prices ended.
Chirming - Visual Communication - Student Winner
Chirming is a creative and unorthodox project that attempts to create a visual manifestation of bird songs. Designing an array of representations that vary according to the type of bird, Chirming presents a series of images that are both compelling and soothing. The project's designer, Sukgo, succeeded in fusing bird song with mandala designs and submitted her project five days ahead of the end of 2015 Early Bird pricing.
Commercial Type Showcase - Visual Communication - Professional Winner
Commercial Type Showcase is a set of sixteen microsites for the Commercial Type webfonts library. The microsites explore how a type specimen can be experienced differently when paired with the abilities of the web. Each of the microsites shows a different family from the Commercial Type library and highlights a different aspect of its personality. Wael Morcos entered this interactive project with only four days left in the 2015 Early Bird pricing.
LINDO Smart Vehicle is a three-wheeled, electric vehicle concept that is both environmentally friendly and convenient to use. LINDO is imagined as a public transport system that can be hailed via smartphone, and aims to make transit in the city of Melbourne less linear and less congested. Kyle Armstrong from RMIT University submitted this concept project the day before the 2015 Early Bird prices closed.
Room on the Roof - Built Environment - Professional Winner
Built into the interior of a tower located in the heart of Amsterdam, Room on the Roofis a haven for artists of all denominations. The interior installation plays with scale and perception in the vein of 'Alice in Wonderland', and includes storage, a pantry, a desk, and a daybed stacked on top of one another as if to invoke the notion of a 'living cabinet'. This project made the Early Bird pricing cut with just over 12 hours left to spare.
Palisade Collection - Furniture & Lighting - Professional Winner
The Palisade Collection is a series of furniture pieces that aim to address the needs of both patients and visitors in a healthcare facility. Offering seating, technology support, lighting, storage, sleeping and work space, Palisade has thoughtful features that make it easy for guests to talk eye-to-eye with patients, share meals, entertain themselves, check in at the office, and sleep without leaving the patient's side. With only about seven hours left before the Early Bird pricing ended last year, Jess Sorel got his submission in and took home the trophy!
