The Mohawk Show allows thousands of printers and designers a chance to catch the eye of their peers and potential clients by having their entries reviewed by Mohawk’s marketing team, an esteemed panel of jurors, and viewers of the traveling exhibit. This year’s show chair, Marty Neumeier, Director of Transformation, Liquid Agency said of this year’s winners, “The top winners of Mohawk 11 couldn’t be more varied: a premiere thought-leadership organization, a hip greeting card company, a pioneer in sustainable floor products, a leading science organization, and an internationally known photographer. What they have in common is this: an insistence on excellent design, meticulous printing, and intelligent paper choices.”
The five Best of Show winners are: California Academy of Science for Evolution at the California Academy of Science, Cahan & Associates for TED Program Guide, Toth Brand Imaging for Folio No. 3, Pilot NY for The End and Paper Culture for The Faces of Stationery.
