It’s a blockbluster line-up of Launch Pad finalists this year, and we’re excited to share the breaking news with you!
July 1st, 2011
With over 100 entries into this year’s Launch Pad competition, the judges had their work cut out for them.
This year’s entries represented a wealth of skill and ingenuity in product design, further confirming that Australia is home to a rich source of design talent.
After much consideration the judges selected 53 prototypes to be shortlisted, and then whittled this down to just 15 finalists.
Finalist prototypes were selected based on superior aesthetic, a unique idea, well-developed concepts and beautifully resolved prototypes.
