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.
Congratulations to Camden and to all the students who participated. Also, a big thanks to Gordon and Geneva for involving our students and sponsoring the contest!
