Entro designed this year’s RGD DesignThinker of the Year Award for presentation at the DesignThinkers Conference in Toronto earlier this month. The award design (fabricated by WSI) takes inspiration from a star or mark of excellence, suggested through varying beams of colour. These colour beams were applied to the award’s surfaces to create an interplay of light and shadow. The award is comprised of three acrylic panels joined together by hidden fasteners, and flame-polished for a smooth finish. An overlapping black aluminum nameplate grounds the design, giving precedence to the award winner. The complete design combines understated materials with a precise composition to produce depth and variance that capture a viewer’s interest.
Congratulations to Larry Rosen, CEO of Harry Rosen Inc., who is this year’s RGD DesignThinker of the Year award recipient. The award honours corporate leaders who recognize the role of design in driving innovation and business success.
