Judging Criteria


Any great designer will tell you that rules are our friends. Even something as liberating as design has a few rules and guidelines, it’s what helps steer the process. So, here are a few rules, don’t worry, nothing too limiting.

Innovative.
This kinda goes without saying. Ask yourself, does the design solve a problem and add value?

Creative.
One man’s creative is another man’s WTF? Just ensure that the design is original, delightful and impactful.

Appropriate.
Design is one thing, complete off-the-wall irrelevance, no matter how good it looks is quite another. Your design must have a convincing correlation between the solution and the nature of the client’s business.

Crafted.
The best ideas can be let down by poor execution. Make sure all your design elements are well crafted and supported by good print quality.
