The First Place Design selected by the MCAI NY team is
We congratulate them!
The design team are Anna Kamjou, design strategy director, Franz Enmark, senior designer, Frida Frisén, account manager, and Nikolaj Kledzik, senior designer, of 802 Kommunikation AB, in Stockholm, Sweden.
The 802 design team have been notified and have accepted our invitation to work with us on an identity program for the festival.
We would like to take this opportunity to also congratulate the popular choice, Beyond the Boundary, by Yuko Inagaki, of Boston, Massachusetts, USA, which received the most votes from among Design 21 members, and will be awarded the $500 prize.
We support Design 21 in their work to foster "Better design for the greater good" and we thank them for sponsoring this contest. Nonprofits like ours don't always have the funds to hire top designers. My co-producer and I have worked for four years, on a strictly volunteer basis, to create and produce the Stories from the Field festival. MCAI NY, which presents it, is an all-volunteer organization. But being poor doesn't stop us from wanting the best. This contest and the 802 design team gave us a chance to have it, and we are grateful.
