Not only is the Society of the Plastics Industry Inc. giving out awards to cool products in its triennial International Plastics Design Competition at NPE 2012, but from the same crop of nearly three dozen entries will emerge the winner of the 12th IDSA/Plastics News Design Award. The judges (for that award only) are a trio of industrial design experts - Augusto Picozza, ID director at Jarden Consumer Solutions in Boca Raton, Fla.; Sean Hagen, principal and director of research and synthesis at BlackHagen Design in Dunedin, Fla.; and Michael Paloian, founder/president of Integrated Design Systems Inc. in Great Neck, N.Y. That award, co-presented by the Industrial Designers Society of America, aims to shine a light on the often-unheralded work of the industrial designer in the product development process. Below is a video with more information on the International Plastics Design Competition. And don't forget to vote online for your favorite via the People's Choice Award.
