l: third ex-aequo prize – ‘cleverness patterned #2‘ by liliam dooley + ernesto oroza from usa r: third ex-aequo prize – ‘Hermès active men‘ by nina choe from usa

third ex-aequo prize ‘cleverness patterned #2’ by liliam dooley + ernesto oroza designer’s words: ‘our design is inspired by – and it also reinterprets – both the symbolic universe and the graphic concept of Hermès ties. the tie, like the umbrella, the paper clip, the digital typeface and the razor blade, belong to a very particular group of objects that have become classic due to the brilliance of their design. our project aims to synthesize the aesthetic pleasure that results from a blend of cleverness, austerity and functionality that good design entails.’

  • Great job, really like all the patterns, and my comliments to hermes, which despites the history and the high positions of the brands, try to keep contacts with young designers, opening its doors to everyone, I know it sounds quite obvious, but now-a-days too many big companies do not.
