Top Drawer has announced the finalists in the show’s bi-annual PaperAwards which feature four categories: Best Stationery Design, Exciting Use of Colour, Emotive Design and Engaging Print.
“This season has seen the highest number of entries for the PaperAwards yet, not to mention the most incredible quality,” commented Top Drawer’s show director Alejandra Campos. “The awards continue to be a highly respected and effective initiative to recognise and support the work of publishers and designers, giving them added exposure to the very best retailers at our show and the judging day, as well as promotion through our expansive marketing and communication channels. From this early glimpse of what’s to come, I’m thrilled for visitors to Top Drawer S/S20 to see the exciting product offering in January.”
Finalists in the Best Stationery Design category are: ola; The Completist; Crispin Finn; Sleepy Bee Studio; The ‘Room’ Alive and Block Design.
