The annual Graphic Design seminar and competition by Grafill, a norwegian Association of Graphic Design and Illustration member of Icograda, just happen last week with a great program including talks from Adrian Shaughnessy, Rinzen Steve & Rilla Alexander, Sami Kortemäki (Underware), Rick Webb (Barbarian Group), Geneviève Gauckler, Mateus de Pula Santos (Lobo), among others.

At the Awards ceremony i was given a Special Mention for the Design and Art direction (at Bleed Design Studio) of the Diesel New Art 2006 Catalogue. As the night went on, surprises yet to come when i was called to the stage again, this time with my friend and colleague Svein Haakon Lia, to receive the Gold Award (and a bottle of champagne :) for the PSP Candy website in the open class category also made at Bleed.
