Yes, it's all true! You're eyes are definitely not misleading you! haul has been nominated for an award at this years Desktop CREATE:2010 Awards to be held this Friday 17th September at the majestic Forum Theatre.
Those creative kids at Desktop are pretty chuffed with our work here at haul. So much so that we're in the running to win 'The Sustainability award'. A recognition of our recycled printing blanket and billboard vinyl designs, created using "sustainable processes and practices".
And what is this Desktop? Well, to put it in perspective, Desktop are Australia’s most-read design & digital culture magazine. Month by month, they review, report and explore the inspirations behind amazing design, worldwide. And for the 6th year now, Desktop put on a small awards night, (700+ people & maybe even a strip of red carpet,...but, you know,...small) to celebrate what they think is pretty rad in Australian design. An industry night of nights, if you will, kinda like the Brownlow Medal of design, sans tandoori fake tans, skimpy outfits & Brendan Fevola.
So we've got our fingers, toes and paws crossed.
