Winner! Best Packaging Design AADC Awards

18 04 2009

What a buzz. Against some huge competition from Adelaide’s creative industry big guns, I managed to take out the top award for Packaging Design at the recent Adelaide Advertising & Design Club Awards for Vertigo – a creative wine label design produced with Fuller for Vina La Linea.

The prestigious award was presented at a gala black tie awards ceremony, the theme of the night being ‘Wrestling with ideas‘ which had me climbing into a real-life wrestling ring on centre stage to receive the award from AADC’s president, flanked by two wrestlers who were providing half-time entertainment for the night and the ever-beaming Kellie Campbell from Parallax who also received an award.

The celebrations kicked on to The Gov hotel to party into the wee small hours with fellow awards night revelers. Half the next day was lost (as were my shoes!?) but the prestigious glass trophy and smile was still firmly in place.


The AADC Awards are Australia’s longest running creative industry award, recognising creative excellence in Advertising and Design.
