Cohoes, NY–based Mohawk Fine Papers Inc.’s “The Mohawk Show” honors the impact of the graphic design industry and the important role that design plays in our culture. “The significance of this show for us, other than being privy to seeing amazing work from all over the world, is to see firsthand that print is not dead, and through our Mohawk Show traveling exhibit, showcase this endless array of design on paper,” says Laura Shore, senior vice president of communications and innovation strategies, Mohawk.
The contest allows thousands of 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. This year’s show chair, Marty Neumeier, director of transformation, Liquid Agency, says of this year’s winners: “The top winners of Mohawk 11 couldn't be more varied: a premiere thought-leadership organization, a hip greeting card company, a pioneer in sustainable floor products, a leading science organization, and an internationally known photographer. What they have in common is this: an insistence on excellent design, meticulous printing, and intelligent paper choices."
Each of Mohawk Show 11’s five “Best of Show” winners will receive a $5,000 reward, and the 19 finalists each receive a $500 reward.
The five “Best of Show” winners are the California Academy of Sciences for “Evolution at the California Academy of Science” (printer: Paragraphics Fine Printing, San Rafael, CA); Cahan & Associates for “TED Program Guide” (printer: Lithographix, Los Angeles, CA); Toth for “Folio No. 3” (printer: Earth Enterprise, New York, NY); Pilot NY for “The End” (printer: Blanchette Press, Richmond, BC, Canada); and Paper Culture for “The Faces of Stationery” (printer: Paper Culture, Burlingame, CA).
