Mondi sponsors design awards to celebrate new PERGRAPHICA® portfolioPublication Date:
18 January 2017
Launched last year, PERGRAPHICA® is Mondi’s portfolio of premium uncoated fine papers designed for the exacting needs of the creative and commercial print industries. Since then, it has won the admiration of many in the graphic design and printing industries across Europe. To celebrate the success of this new portfolio, Mondi sponsored awards in two print & design competitions: the Joseph Binder Award and the Golden Pixel Award.
The Joseph Binder Award is an international competition focused on graphic design and illustration. More than 300 graphic designers and illustrators from 27 countries entered their projects for the 2016 awards, which were presented on 10 November at an awards ceremony in Vienna. (More information and pictures from the event can be found on the Joseph Binder Award Facebook page.)
As sponsor of the award category for ‘Editorial Design Books’, Mondi presented the trophy to gold award winner Konstantin Eremenko of Eremenko Visual Communication agency. He won for a fascinating book project called ‘Rediscovering’, a visual interpretation of the periodic table of the elements in the chronological order of their discovery. Mr Eremenko commented, “My challenge as a graphic designer was to find
a new way of visually explaining epistemological knowledge. The haptic effect was quite important for the combination of paper texture and multi-layered silkscreen printing.”
The Golden Pixel Award recognises progressive and innovative printing projects in Austria. In 2016 Mondi sponsored the category for ‘(Multi)sensory Projects’ and presented the award at the ceremony in November. The winning project was the HoHo brochure, produced by printing house Ferdinand Berger and Sons for their client Kerbler Holding. Commenting on the paper choice, Mario Vucic of Ferdinand Berger
and Sons said, “It is not only the haptics of the paper – the visual and olfactory effects should also have an immediate impact. Only then are all elements joined through the symbiosis of the material and the print craftsmanship to produce a virtual work of art.”
Caroline Palfy, project leader for the HoHo brochure at Kerbler Holding, was pleased with the award-winning result: “The haptic experience – from the cover to the last page – is simply magnificent!”
