The Netherlands did pretty well during this year’s European Design Awards in Cologne. Momkai received a Jury Prize for their brand design of De Correspondent, Lava went home with gold in the Brand Implementation category for their work for the Istanbul Biennial, and The Stone Twins won gold for their stamp design celebrating Dublin as a UNESCO City of Literature. In total Dutch agencies and designers were awarded five times gold, 12 silver and 15 bronze. Especially Momkai stood out from the Dutch nominees: besides the Jury Prize the (digital) design agency also won silver (infographics) and three times bronze (brand logo, brand & editorial illustration and corporate illustration) for De Correspondent.
