The Mohawk Show honors the impact of the graphic design industry and the important role that design plays in our culture. “After seeing the amazing entries from all over the world, what struck us most is that, contrary to some opinions, print is definitely not dead,” says Jane Monast, Director of Communications for Mohawk.
The Mohawk Show allows printers and designers a chance to catch the eye of their peers and potential clients by having their entries reviewed by an esteemed panel of jurors and viewers of the traveling exhibit.
The Mohawk Show 12 jury included: show chair Stanley Hainsworth, Tether, Inc., Seattle; Jorge Alderete, Illustrator, Mexico City; Michael Jager, JDK Design, Burlington, VT; and Susana Rodriguez de Tembleque, SY Partners, San Francisco.
After the judging, Stanley Hainsworth of Tether, Inc. said of this year’s winners: “We saw some very modest projects rise to the surface because the design, paper and execution elevated them to winner’s status in a very strong field of entries.”
Mohawk Show 12’s four Best of Show winners will each receive a $5,000 award, the four special category winners each receive $2,500 and finalists receive $500 each.
