One year more, ELISAVA recognizes its students’ rigor and excellence with the ei! Awards. These awards stimulate creativity of future talents and, at the same time, spread students’ ingenuity and competitiveness within the society.
The awards of this 4th edition of ELISAVA’s ei! Awards have been for Iolanda Monsó (student of Degree in Design for the Best Student Record), and for the following Best Final Degree Projects: Andrea Elbaile (Product Design), Berta Escudero (Space Design), Martina Nadal (Global Design), Humberto Iess (Product Development), and Andrea Maresch (Graphic Communication). The ei! Awards Audience Category have been given ex aequo to Miguel Ángel Anton and Míriam Estévez. Both of them received more than 1,000 votes by Facebook.
These awards promote continuity in students’ formation, which implies the full funding for one of the Master’s programme offered at ELISAVA (Best Student Record Category), or for a Postgraduate programme (Best Final Degree Projects Category).
30 projects have participated in this edition, which has been of a high quality due to work’s plurality.
This year’s jury (according to aspects such as innovation, concept, function, development, methodology, and social, economical and environmental viability) has counted on the participation of Enric Jardí, for Enric Jardí Disseny Gràfic (www.enricjardi.com); Jordi Tamayo, creator - founder of Estudi JT and director of Festival CYCLO (www.jorditamayo.com); together with representatives of ELISAVA’s general and academic direction.
