CHARLOTTE, N.C. – November 15, 2019
Vishion, a Charlotte, N.C.-based interior design startup, announced today the launch of a design award competition for interior designers. The award will recognize designers who showcase a passion for incorporating complex color palettes in a single space design across textiles, materials, space planning and staging to appeal to our emotions.
The Vishion mobile app launched earlier this year, giving designers the ability to use their preferred Pantone color swatches and Sherwin-Williams colors to guide their decor search and store their favorite palettes.
“We created the Vishion Design Award to give interior designers the opportunity to be recognized for creating one-of-a-kind, colorful designs,” said Vishion Founder and CEO Samantha Smith. “These are the designs that start trends. These are the designs that homeowners across the country dream about when purchasing a home.”
Submissions are open Nov. 15, 2019, until Jan. 17, 2020. Winners will be announced in February 2020. The Vishion Design Award judging panel will be finalized on December 6, with an announcement naming the judges issued soon thereafter.
Judges will assess entries across the following criteria:
- Color palette complexity: How has a complexity of color been utilized in the design.
- Quality: Overall level of craftsmanship and skill.
- Creativity & innovation: What design challenges did the designer have, and how did they address them?
- ‘Wow’ factor: Is the design stunning?
- Personal story: Why the entrant became a designer and why design is important to them.
- Social sharing and engagement: Was the designer able to garner social support for their design?
The grand prize winner will receive a cash prize of $5,000 USD, in addition to a feature on the Vishion blog, PR promotion, and media coverage.
Vishion chief marketing officer Bryan McCarter adds, “The Vishion Design Award is built around how designers use a complexity of color in their designs. Developing and executing against complex color palettes is what the Vishion app does best, and this competition will help make the connection between how the Vishion app can aid designers in their work, related to color palette development and design execution.”
