Corina Sevilla (Design Academie Eindhoven) and Sharon Morgenstern (Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico DF) are the two first prize winners of VBAT MEET MARKET 2014. Students in Amsterdam and Mexico City were challenged to design the tail fin of an airplane for the Holland-Mexico Line, taking into account the cultural and design background of both countries.

To make the creative exchange complete Corina will be sent off to VBAT Mexico for two weeks creative bootcamp, while Sharon will be invited over to VBAT Amsterdam for the same experience.

The second prize went to the Mexican, Miguel Angel Garcia, the third prize to Kevin van Schie from Leiden.

From nearly 200 entries overall our Jurors Richard van der Laken (WDCD), Nicolette Hulsebos (Fonk), Joris van Elk (ADCN), Saskia Vermeulen, Pieter Jelle Braaksma and Graham Sturt (VBAT) worked hard to select only a handful of very deserving nominees in Mexico and The Netherlands. Graham Sturt, head of the jury and Creative Director of VBAT says: “The two overall winners were chosen because their designs were graphically impactful and conceptually captured a unique idea.”
