Our expert judging panel has determined the shortlist, and now you have voted for the winner in each category. The winners and finalists' artwork will be displayed right in the heart of the Greetings & Stationery area at Top Drawer during 15-17 January at Olympia London. The PaperAwards S/S17, sponsored by G . F Smith, celebrates the creativity and innovation of Top Drawer's Greetings & Stationery exhibitors.
The three categories in this edition of the PaperAwards S/S17 are:
- Emotive Design - reviewing use of colour, lines, shape, form, texture and light - looking on a subtle level at design cues that work to reinforce and enhance designs in a way customers will interact with the products.
- Engaging Print - looking at the creative ways the designer has used print to translate the designs using a combination of innovation and exploration to engage with the customer.
- Exciting Use of Colour - looking at how designs use colours that help tell the story of the range - creating colour harmony across the collection whether that be clean and sharp with minimal colours or detailed and intricate patterns with a burst of colour.
