MAKO Shortlisted for Creativepool Industrial Design Awards

by | Mar 27, 2018 | Community Initiatives, Company News, Events, Industrial Design

Every year for the last five years, Creativepool has awarded the top talent in several creative industries with the honor of being the best and brightest in that field. Not only does Creativepool dish out industrial design awards, they also award creatives in everything from the best branding to the best experiential marketing. With their finger on the pulse of everything that is creative, the MAKO team had to get involved.

For industrial design awards, a panel of judges from around the globe reviews submissions and shortlists the best.

MAKO has been named to the shortlist for Creativepool’s industrial design awards thanks to all who voted. Voting is now closed.

Creativepool’s Industrial Design Awards:

We’re excited to announce that thanks to our talented designers, MAKO has been shortlisted for the Creative Pool industrial design awards, making it into the top 12 finalists. MAKO submitted two of our top projects that were recently launched, which include the Moonlite: a children’s story time projector for your mobile phone, and the Kharaband: a smartwatch band that extends battery life by 350%.

Creativepool is the industry connector to all creative industries and is home to over 250, 000 people and close to 20, 000 companies. For the last five years, they’ve launched an annual awards competition to honor the best and brightest in the creative industries. Showcasing a monumental range of talent across the creative sector, the Creativepool Annual awards is what it means to be truly creative. Each entry is judged by an international panel of judges from some of the world’s biggest brands.

MAKO has been shortlisted for the industrial design awards because of this and one other submission.

MAKO’s first submissions: the Kharaband.

Awards Competition:

On the shortlist, our two projects are competing with talented design firms from all around the world, who have created interesting projects like collaborative furniture, customizable light fixtures, and backpacks designed for the running commuters. No matter who the industrial design awards go to, it’s an honor to be in such great company.

The winners are revealed at their launch party on May 10, 2018, so we will keep you posted on the results. We owe it to our amazing clients for coming up with such great invention ideas, and to our world-class design and engineering team for continuing to “wow” us every project.
