Awhile back we got the official results of the Illustrated Sound contest that Illustration students from Noel Claro’s Beyond the Page class took part in earlier this year:
There were 1395 voters. The most popular design as decided by the voters is:
Tape, by Camden Dunning
The illustration students should be proud of their work – there were many positive comments left and lots of compliments. One of our favorite comments came from an executive at Bowers&Wilkins, a legendary audio manufacturer, who manages a product, the Zeppelin, that is a direct competitor of the GenevaSound Medium:
“You don’t need to enter me in the contest. I already have a Medium and we are competitors. They are all great and I thought the artist would appreciate a vote of confidence.”
Thanks to everyone who helped to make this happen.
As a reminder, here’s the official description of the project:
Design Within Reach pairs sound with color as Parsons illustration students move “beyond the page” to illustrate a one-of-a-kind vinyl skin created for the Geneva Sound System, a modern “hi-fi” with a CD player, FM radio and iPod dock all encased in a piano-lacquered wooden box. Experience the intersection of music, illustration and design, and enter to win the medium Geneva with its unique Gelaskin.
A HUGE congratulations to the following students who were all selected for inclusion in the American Illustration tribute website:
Gabriella Cetrulo (Garson)

This is a big honor and an amazing showing for our department. Thank you to all the students for their fantastic work and congratulations on this prestigious achievement! Here is a gallery of all the accepted images. We are so proud of you all.
