It feels like coming full circle, to receive recognition in my hometown for a project undertaken in my new home city. "Façades", which was inspired by, developed and released in Barcelona back in November, earned a silver for best design in illustration at the Adobo Design Awards, held in Manila on March 28.
The awards show counts five gold, 14 silver and 42 bronze winners across 14 categories, and boasts a jury headed by Lucille Lozada Tenazas, Associate Dean at Parsons' School of Art, Media and Technology. Other wins in the illustration category include silver awards for TBWA\Santiago Mangada Puno's "Pad Paper" and "Tree Lungs", another silver for Daryl Feril's "Passage to Paradise", as well as bronze awards for Alyssa J. De Asis' "Festival of Colors" and Campaigns and Grey's "Rubber Cut".
I can't be happier to have a favorite project also turn out to be a well-received one. Many thanks to everyone who made this possible and congratulations to all the winners!
