In a nutshell, The Best of Manchester Awards celebrate innovation in art, music and fashion. Organised by Urbis and judged by a panel of industry experts, these annual awards spotlight the boundary-breaking, genre defying kind of work for which Manchester has long been renowned.
I was so impressed with the best of manchester awards 2009 exhibition at the Urbis. I really liked the illustration work, it was so decorative and really inspiring. It definatly topped the work brought from New York in the state of the art exhibition, Who'da thought it! I also liked the advertising pieces for the awards with the overlapping text, and quotes from famous designers. The idea was simple and concise, it was really striking and the sort of work that stands out to me.
