The ’Launch’ Package

Understanding what it takes to get a successful career in design off the ground, Launch Pad has tailored its 2011 prizes to help achieve just this.

The ’Launch’ Package


May 5th, 2011

There are numerous facets to having a product ’picked up’ by a distributor or manufacturer, getting a business up and running, and keeping the whole operation running smoothly.

With this in mind, Launch Pad has selected a unique set of career-boosting opportunities for the Winning Finalists of Launch Pad’s 2011 program.

These prizes are streamlined to help you take that next step in your design practice, whether it’s advertising, manufacturing, retailing, or working out the minor (but essential) details.

Making up the ’Launch’ package of prizes is:

• $10,000 How We Create grant to launch your career
• 12-month advertising campaign from Indesign Group
• Opportunity to have your product retailed through Major Sponsor Living Edge
Note: terms and conditions apply

How We Create are highly knowledgeable in the ways of production and manufacturing of product, and the $10,000 How We Create grant will channel vital funds into the development of your prototype and practice.

Taking care of your marketing will be a 12-month advertising plan with Indesign Group, enabling you to reach new audiences across Australia and internationally.
