So, October is here which marks the end of our first Design Democracy Blog Awards. We enjoyed having our four winning bloggers with us for 2 weeks over London Design Festival. For those that missed their fantastic posts, it’s not too late to catch up with all the action.
To celebrate the awards and the winners, we hosted a ceremony at the prestigious Victoria and Albert Museum. Each winner received a trophy, designed by the wonderful guys at SPLENDiD and presented to them by US interior designer (and mydeco US design board member) Brad Ford, who was excited to be a part of this first award celebrating the best in UK design blogging.
The awards designed by new kids on the block, SPLENDiD, celebrate the concept of blogging as well as more specifically, the 4 winners. ‘Blogging is represented in the form of a stream of digital messages traveling through abstract fibre-optic cables, their form distorting, causing an amplification and ‘broadcast’ of these important messages. The way the paths twist away from one another highlights the personal nature of a blog; information can take readers on an array of lateral journeys..’

Brad addressed the guests and winners about how important blogging is to him, as it gives everyone a voice to talk about what is important to them when thinking about design. A truly democratic speech!
