Scodix announced the winners of its annual Design Awards competition. Scodix enlisted the keen eyes and technological understanding of a team of judges in perusing each entry, with submissions from users worldwide.
The distinguished panel of judges rated submissions for design quality, production complexity, and overall appearance on the floor of the Graph Expo 2015 show. 'English mathematician Karl Pearson once said, ‘It is the old experience that a rude instrument in the hand of a master craftsman will achieve more than the finest tool wielded by the uninspired journeyman.’ Our annual awards exemplifies what happens when master craftsmen are then granted access to the finest tools. It’s rewarding to see the Scodix solution implemented by production professionals with such applied creative wizardry, especially when you realise the impact it’s having on their clients’ success worldwide,' noted Scodix CEO Roy Porat.
The applicants displayed work that represented just about every segment of the market, including direct mail, product packaging, fine arts, and commercial printing. This contest is crafted to identify the most creative work produced by Scodix customers using Scodix Digital Print Enhancement technology. All of the submitted entries projected professionalism, creativity, and a superior understanding of the power and potential impact of the Scodix post-press enhancement tools.
