Graphex 44 Recap

Thank you to everyone who participated in Graphex 44. We had a great turnout, and a great time. Jakub Hartleib kicked the night off with beautiful (and delicious) food, while Mark Kuykendall set the mood with some chill vibes. Guests strolled through our makeshift gallery of winners, a truly inspiring showing.

 

Our Graphex 44 team worked tirelessly to put together this year’s show. The awards segment was short and sweet, and each category was introduced by a local artisan. From violin makers, to grass tenders at ONEOK Field, and brewers at Marshall’s, we kept people guessing who would pop up next. At the end of the awards, we hope you were surprised to see a new feature: comments from this year’s judges. As you know, our judges were experienced, unbiased designers from across the Midwest. Alan from Leo Burnett commended Tulsa on our design and our barbeque, while Shawn from Blacktop Creative gave a special shout-out to this year’s Raffe Award recipient, John Hammer.

Congratulations to all the winners. Thanks to your hard work and participation, we were able not only to inspire each other, we also fueled future designers through scholarship awards. And between the winner’s books* and the photobooth, we all had a little souvenir to take with us. What was your favorite part of the night?

*One award was originally omitted from the book, though we did announce it during the show. That piece was the identity for Hoteles M, by Cubic. Winston Peraza, creative director; Sean Ball, art director; Hoteles M, client. This received a Merit for Identity.
