FEATURE SIX SCHOOLS
• The Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers & Distributors
Association (ICMAD) announced that six highly acclaimed schools
of art and design will compete in the 2010 ICMAD Young Designers Competition.
“The schools involved in this year’s program boast some of the
finest design departments in the country,” said ICMAD president
Pamela Busiek of CBI Laboratories, Inc.
The schools participating in this year’s program are: The School
of the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago; The American Academy of
Art, Chicago; Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, Los
Angeles; Fashion Institute of Technology, New York; Miami International University of Art & Design, Miami; and The Academy of
Art University, San Francisco.
The competition, created in 1999, showcases the talents of students studying package design. The goal of the Young Designers
Competition is to encourage and develop future creative talent.
Judging criteria for packaging include uniqueness, ability to be reproduced economically, ability to stand out favorably against competitive packages, ease of use and ease of storage.
Each student receives an 8oz recycled tube, donated by ICMAD
member World Wide Packaging. The students are asked to create
any type of product for the body, such as a moisturizer, lotion or
skin care. They can create the brand, such as product name, descriptive copy and net weights.
“The Young Designers focuses on encouraging up-and-coming talent and honors those whose innovative achievements
set them apart in this highly competitive industry,” added Busiek.
Presenter and eco-jewelry designer Katy Leakey, founder of the
Leakey Collection, will present the Young Designers awards in New
York City on Sept. 29 at a dinner hosted by ICMAD.
