I enjoyed a nice night out (no kids!) at the ultra-swank Hyatt Regency Gainey Ranch Resort for the ASID Design Excellence Awards in Scottsdale last week. The cocktail meet and greet was full of conversation, familiar faces, and friendly smiles. The herb crusted chicken and filet mignon at dinner were fantastic (yes, I had both). A definite highlight of the awards-presentation that followed was when our pal Debra May Himes received the Prestigious Medalist award. It was so cool to see her receive a standing ovation while her son and husband presented her with flowers. The night was not entirely without shenanigans….while the winners arrived on stage to receive their awards, the disco music set some feet on fire and some fingers pointing like John Travolta. Many winners had some surprisingly funky disco moves….hilarious!
After seeing some of the extensive and in depth projects projected on the big screen, I am convinced that some of designers must work 24-7. For example, Anita Lang Mueller, David Michael Miller, Kacie Moore, Tony Sutton, and many more were winning multiple awards for some pretty meticulous and obviously tedious undertakings. They sure accomplish a lot in one year!
Oh yeah ….WE WON TOO! It sure is an honor to be recognized for product design by our peers at ASID.
