08 Nov Introducing the Indigo Design Award
Introducing the Indigo Design Award
We started by asking a simple question, “what’s the most effective way to serve and promote the design community?”
The question was borne out of personal frustration and a desire to do something different. As experts in the field of design, we’d participated in and worked with many esteemed design competitions whose function seemed to be to harness the talent of their participants to increase their own prestige. While many of these competitions have produced awe-inspiring work and launched successful careers, we thought, we can improve this.
We took a long look at the competition model and asked, “is this best for the designers?” The answer is no. The model is best for the competitions- not for the designers.
So began our journey to develop a competition whose goal wasn’t to elevate our status but to be the prism through which international, cutting-edge talent shone through. Indigo Design is this vessel. We are a new kind of competition that celebrates and promotes innovation, prodigy and the very best of Graphic, Digital, Mobile and Games design. We will be holding our first Indigo Design Award Ceremony in Tokyo in 2018. Already the competition is generating tons of interest from design pioneers who see the value in what we have to offer and are flocking to participate in our jury. We expect our competition to be a truly unique experience!
Indigo Design exists to serve. We want to know what moves you. We want to share and spread your unique worldview.
We are looking for unsung heroes, the ones who work behind the scenes to create a killer brand identity that takes a company to the next level. We want the creative geniuses who dream up intricate fantasy realms for online games. The master architects who push the limits of imagination to design website interfaces that are as inventive as they are intuitive.
Are you an artist in the field of UX, Interface and Navigation? Let us promote you. Can you compose Mobile Apps that seamlessly integrate user experience with a truly beautiful end product? Let us celebrate you. Do you use sound effects and music to expertly enhance a website? Let us serve you and help take your career to the next level. It’s not about us. It’s about you- glorifying your vision by presenting it on a global stage.
