Thanks to Good Design Australia for the enhancing the recognition of good design.
I'd like to thank Airbolt for the dedication and persistence they have provided in getting a well designed product to market.
Thanks to Lee Baker, Michelle Rosevear, Andrew Fox, Kelly Watts, Ryan Mischkulnig, Rachel Enright and Sue Bayly for their roles in realising such a well designed product. Well done team.
Of course, there were plenty of other highlights of the night. As is often the case, the overall winners are not what you might imagine.
The Aurecon and Cox Architects team responsible for the design of Brisbane's new Flood Resilient and Accessible Ferry Terminals are winners of the Overall Award for product design. The video is the best way to understand what makes it so special. Do yourself a favour and have a look.
A New Zealand based card game for 5 to 8 year old boys, Game of Awesome is the overall winner in the Communications category. It is recognised for its effectiveness in engaging and inspiring boys to learn how to tell stories and learn to write.
One of my personal favourites is the design award winning Eccentric mixer system designed by Nick Johnston at Roger Seller. I love the simplicity and understated nature of the product.
