Meet Your Launch Pad Judges

We’re excited to announce the judging panel of the 2012 Launch Pad program.

Meet Your Launch Pad Judges


May 8th, 2012

The Launch Pad program returns in 2012, a literal launch pad for developing designers to put forth their concept and prototypes in a bid to have their designs realised.

This year the Launch Pad program is welcoming to the panel a group of 7 highly acclaimed judges representing a broad spectrum of design specialties and areas of expertise, to come together and review the 2012 Launch Pad entries.

The Judging panel will select a list of finalists to show their work in the Launch Pad Finalists’ Exhibition as part of Saturday in Design Melbourne (18 – 19 August 2012).

This year’s entrants have put their designs in the spotlight, right under the noses of the who’s who of design.

We would like to extend a warm welcome, and special thanks (in advance!), to this year’s Launch Pad judging panel. Meet them below…
