dd day

we had a long day session yesterday in not-so-sunny-eindhoven (with the whole jury for the DDA 2011 communication category) trying (and succeeding) to get our initial selection, made last month, shortened down to a finite list of nominees for this years ‘dutch design awards’

it was an inspiring and fun day and we left with an overall feeling that we had made the right choices and found the work that stood out the most in quality, innovation and idea… whether everyone else agrees is doubtful… fickle bunch designers, we shall see when the finalists are announced in the near future, until then i must keep my mouth shut, tough gig…

a new chairman (antoine achten) and a more demographically varied panel of jury members sitting around the table has definitely improved (and highered) the standards and provided a broader base of collective ‘design’ experience, good news for those who entered their work this year i feel… good luck to you all, fingers crossed
