MAKO Wins Gold in the Indigo Design Awards

MAKO Design + Invent – April 16, 2019


The Indigo Design Awards are prestigious awards that exist to encourage and promote creativity for your award-winning design firm. Their award ceremony is held annually in the world’s most cutting-edge cities, where the nominees are judged by a jury of handpicked innovators and designers.


The Judges

The judges, aka “the jury” is made up of a hand-selected panel of incredible design talent such as Alexander Khmelevskiy, a User Experience Design Director with more than 15 years of experience working with highly recognizable brands such as Google, Facebook, Slack, Coca-Cola, and more. Alex Inanov, a Product Designer with more than ten years of experience working with renowned agencies like IDEO and SYPartners, plus large product companies like Philips, and Yandez. Andreas Panaglotopoulos, a Digital/Creative Strategist who has worked at advertising agencies and digital powerhouses on a series of clients like Volvo, Carlsberg, and the list only continues to impress.


The Categories

Categories range from graphic design, digital design, mobile design, and games design. The winners of the 2019 categories will be celebrated in beautiful Malaga, Spain, the birthplace of one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, Pablo Picasso.

Award-Winning Design Firm, MAKO x Benetti Watch

Award-winning design firm, MAKO, is proud to be joining the list of winners in the 3D CAD category for their work on the Benetti Watch. The Benetti Watch was designed by MAKO and created from the finest materials which places itself above its competition. The concept of the watch was developed from an idea, refined through development and mechanical engineering, and advanced further in prototyping which was then assisted by 3D CAD renderings, hand sketching, concept design, digital sketching, product planning, and package design through to production.

The fashion forward watch, aesthetically partnered with timeless mechanics and modern design, is an elegant and stylish timepiece at an affordable price. The Benetti Watch was launched through a Kickstarter campaign earlier last year and is now available online.

MAKO is excited to join the list of incredible winners as an award-winning design firm pushing the limits on innovative design. We can’t wait to continue to sit among such inspiring innovators like the other Indigo Design Award winners.
