Last Friday evening, Sydney was host to the Desktop CREATE Design Awards, celebrating Australia’s world class creative Industry.
Being the first time ever that Sydney was host to this event, usually held in Melbourne, we’re sure the organisers were just as nervous as the shortlisted designers!
The talented crowd gathered at the IVY’s main ballroom for Cocktails and Canapés where the awards were due to commence. Hosted by the entertaining Fenella Kernebone, the Awards covered 13 categories including:
Catalogue, Emerging Talent, Identity, Illustration, Interactive, Motion, Packaging, Photography, Print Commercial, Print Creative, Signage and Display, Typography and Website.
Although Metropolis was not up for any awards, our Studio Producer, Andrew Wallace was lucky enough to score an invite to the event “For me, one of the most impressive pieces was the winner of Motion category – won by agency – Breeder, who created a beautiful double exposure piece.”
The presentations were short, sweet, and sharp !..just how we like them.
Congratulations to the 2013 winner of “Emerging Talent” and “Project of the Year” Andrew Robertson.
After the winners cheque was handed over it was on to the after party held in the IVY Sunroom where everyone kicked on! Sydney definitely did a great job as host…it was a fantastic night!
Hopefully Metropolis picks up one of those shiny little awards next year.
