The Mill Design Studio gets colourful for the AICP Awards
The Mill Design Studio crafts a bespoke design system for the annual AICP Awards at the MoMA.
Last week the Advertising community gathered for the first in-person AICP Awards Gala in two years, held at The MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) in New York City. AICP once again teamed up with the award-winning Design Studio from The Mill, to create their annual title sequence, and entire show-package.
The Mill’s Design Studio was tasked with developing a graphic aesthetic to tie AICP’s three core Award Shows together; AICP Post, AICP Next and the main AICP Awards, visualised on the night of the iconic Gala, and throughout the week-long AICP Basecamp festival
Unique palettes were developed to differentiate the three competitions, while still maintaining the overarching design theme. The design concept is centered on the relationship between art and underlying forces that interact. Abstract patterns, textures, and imagery are given form and meaning through the presence of forces that push and pull, meaning is derived through this perception or defined through typography as message. Following the gala, the designs will live in the MoMA archives.
