London International Awards announces that Isabelle Dahlborg Lidström, Head of Experience and Creative Director at GROW Sweden will preside over the 2018 Design and Package Design jury.
With over 25 years of international experience within the design industry and with a specialty in packaging design, Isabelle is a sought-after jury member for prestigious award competitions. Constantly in tune with what is happening today and where it’s going tomorrow, Isabelle has dedicated her career to using design for innovation as a way to solve business challenges.
“I am thrilled and honoured to be elected Jury President this year. I have great respect and admiration for the competition and the contributions, which always hold a very high level of creativity and craftsmanship. The days of assessing the 2018 LIA submissions with the rest of the jury in Las Vegas will be a memory for lifetime!” stated Isabelle.
"Good design transcends language. It draws us to a product on a shelf and holds our attention, inviting us to take it home with us. In short, good design and packaging breaks down the last barrier between the consumer and the purchase. That’s why we are so passionate about it. LIA has always had very strong entries for both Design and Package Design. So it’s no wonder that we have the best jurors to judge the work. If you were a fly on the wall in the judging room, you would definitely appreciate the intense deliberations that go on over the work. This ensures that deserving pieces of work are honoured,” commented Barbara Levy, President of LIA.
