It was only a few weeks ago when I was tooting my own horn but here I am again… I couldn’t keep it a secret.
Just Creative Design Logo Wins ‘Best of Continent’ and ‘Best of Nation’ Wolda Logo Design Award
Wolda is the innovative graphic design awards scheme that rewards the best logos and trademarks designed throughout the world and the only award scheme endorsed by ICOGRADA and more than 100 other international design associations and schools.
Thanks to its originality and design excellence, the “Just Creative Design” logotype (as seen at the top of this blog) has been selected for the “Best of Continent ’08” and “Best of Nation ’08” talent award and will be included in the Wolda ’08 printed annual, plus an honourable mention on the Wolda website.
To select the winners, an innovative international three-tier jury consisting of 10 top design professionals, 10 major international Clients and finally of 10 members of the public, reviewed all the logos submitted following a unique process which reflects the actual process that turns any logo into a successful logo: the designers decide what to present to the clients, the clients decide what to present to the public, but in the end it is always the public that decides if a brand is successful.
The 30 judges have been selected respectively from ICOGRADA (International Council of Graphic Design Associations), AQUENT and CONSUMERS INTERNATIONAL.
All winning entries for Wolda ’08 are displayed online at www.wolda.org and will be published towards the end of December in the 2008 annual, a substantial hard bound volume of exceptional quality printed on SAPPI acclaimed papers by FONTEGRAFICA.
For those of you interested I can get the book for 50% off but it probably wouldn’t be worth it if you live outside of Australia. Email me if you are interested.
This is the second award won for this logo, the first being the Logo Design Love award. This logo also appears in the book ‘Logo 2’ (ISBN: 978-3-939998-17-4) which will be available in 2009.
Member of NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals)
On another note, I have also just been awarded a year membership at NAPP, which is a trade association serving as a resource for Adobe Photoshop education, training, and news. They have some great tutorials, magazines and lots more, I recommend you to check them out – it really is worth it!
Featured Writer in Layers Magazine
I will also be appearing as a featured writer in the January / February edition of Layers Magazine so watch out for that one. I will post about it once everything has been printed.
Well there we have it, my horn has been tooted yet again!
