Small stage makes it to the big stage
The auditorium in Athens where the inaugural European Design Awards were held was massive. Hundreds of designers from all over Europe came together to see and hear presentations ranging from the design of controversial new Swiss banknotes to the iconography and aesthetics of the Finnish death metal music scene. Surprisingly, there were more than just a few parallels between those two topics, but that's a story for another time.
Many in attendance were also there in anticipation of taking a coveted ED Award back home with them. We're happy to say we did, the one for best company logo for the revolving typographic character we developed for An Grianán Theatre in Letterkenny, County Donegal. Certainly a case of the small stage making it to the big stage.
