Interactive production company, Resn, creates a new plaque for the FWA Hall of Fame Award!
Established by the Favorite Website Awards in 2007, the FWA Hall of Fame is one of the most exclusive clubs on the internet, showcasing only the most outstanding proponents of interactive design, development, and future-thinking creativity.
A select few agencies are inducted into the Hall every year, which currently has a roster of just 27 members. While these agencies have always had bragging rights, there was no physical award to go with the membership. Until now.
The FWA has recently unveiled the Dolby sponsored Hall of Fame plaque, designed by interactive production agency, Resn. The winning design was chosen from a field of entries that was open to all Hall of Fame members worldwide.
With the Hall of Fame ranks dominated by companies from Europe and North America, kiwi firm Resn stands out as one of the only inductees based in the entire Asia-Pacific region.
The simple, elegant plaque takes its design cues from the 5¼-inch floppy disk of yesteryear. The plaques have now been distributed across the globe to all of the Hall of Fame members.
Resn Wellington ECD, Steve Le Marquand, says,
We wanted to acknowledge that the advancements of the future are built upon the achievements of the past. For our industry, the floppy disk seemed like the perfect visual representation of this idea.
Resn Managing Director, Rik Campbell, says,
When Resn was first starting out, we looked up to a lot of the companies on this list. We still do. It’s a real honour to have an award we designed sitting up on their mantlepieces.
