Congratulations are in order for team Creative Method for taking out the pennant in this year’s AGDA Gordon Andrews Scholarship Trivia Night! Thanks to everyone for coming along and making this night a huge success and one of the most fun events on the AGDA calendar.
Well done to James Armstrong from Surveillance for winning the ‘take flight’ competition, once again proving that aeronautical designers do not show up to this event, and congrats to team Interbrand for building the highest structure out of drinking straws in under 5 minutes! But ultimately it was team Creative Method that knew the most about Qantas logos, Pablo Picasso, opera house tiles, barbie dolls, Australian Gladiator and many things in between, winning them a bunch of cool stuff kindly provided by Semi-Permanent, Yaffa Publishing, The Art Gallery of NSW, SABA, Hopscotch Films and a host of other kind contributors.
This was my second year hosting this great night, and I am proud to have been a part of such a worthwhile event supporting a worthy cause: The Gordon Andrews Scholarship is a $3,000 prize awarded to an AGDA student member undertaking inspirational design research through full time study at a formal tertiary program. Proceeds from the night go to fund the Scholarship.
Special thanks to generous sponsors Aquent, Konica Minolta and Adobe. And a big thank you to the AGDA team, especially Xandro Lombardi and Anita Lyons for their tireless efforts. I look forward to hosting this fabulous event again next year! See you all there!
