The Stationery Designer of the Year competition is a unique opportunity for budding stationery designers to work with an experienced production and sales team and see their ideas taken into production and delivered to retailers throughout the UK. This award is supported by a leading UK manufacturer, who will bring the winner’s designs to life in a stationery range from conception and design, right through to retail sale.
Criteria: Open to all independent, freelance and student designers. The judging panel for this Award will be looking for designers who demonstrate a clear understanding of who they are designing for and what consumer and design trends and styles appeal to that group, as well as good grasp of paper use, pagination and sizing and suggested retail price points.
