Another design awards season, another opportunity to throw a raging party honoring the best designers of the past year.
We were thrilled on June 14th to have the opportunity to throw our 2018 Core77 Design Awards results celebration on the roof of Kickstarter HQ in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, where we honored our 2018 honorees and shared a toast to another year of hard work.
The place was packed with Core77 Design Awards winners old and new, jury captains and teams, and other Core77 friends.
The beautiful rooftop garden at Kickstarter headquarters was the perfect setting for a summer evening party. Cocktails by Duke's Liquor Chocolates made for the party that emulate the Core77 Design Awards trophy (plus the mold and 3d prints used to make the custom chocolates!) Snacks by Campbell Cheese and Grocery Core77 friends partake in some delicious refreshments For New Yorkers, a rooftop reigns supreme as the perfect summer party spot. Cheers to another great year of world-changing design! And free drinks :) Matt Brown of Small Planet—an interaction design studio who's Executive Producer Joana Lehman served as Interaction Jury Captain in the awards this year—brought some fun to the party with his expert tarot card readings.
