Music Design Awards - where brilliance is underscored with inspiration



Spanning nearly two years of efforts, the judges have been stringent in their decisions, weeding out some misleading entries to arrive at a constrained but very worthy list. They range from a website for an individual artist, to a major twin-centre music festival. A first ever Student winner picks up an award for a rethink on packaging.
