Our Winning Projects
Gold Winner: Mosaic Stadium & Saskatchewan Roughriders Branding
To create a venue branding solution for Canada’s 30,000 seat mosaic stadium The Look Company turned to tensioned fabric light boxes where multiple panels were installed with even light distribution using B1 FR regulated polyester. An ingenious countdown clock was created using players helmets, which were all wired to a custom programmed control model and connected to a miniature computer that would power the lights to show the correct time. In total, more than 150,000 square feet, 80% of which was backlit, was printed.
Silver Winner: Printed Textile For Shop Qatar – Design District
Shop Qatar, a fashion and lifestyle show, sought to create a small city in an exhibition hall with wooden built structures up to 6 meters high. These were stretched and wrapped in dye-sub polyester, sewn and mounted across this large expanse of nearly 16,000 square meters.
Bronze Winner: Visual Engagement For Qatar Exxon Mobil Open
From a challenging brief where the client required matching colors to RAL specifications, it was imperative to consistently match a vibrant blue throughout the stadium. Using dye sublimation on polyester, UV roll-to-roll and UV direct to media on rigid boards, this project required color matching across all output devices. The outside of the stadium was also dressed in vibrant, attention-grabbing images.
