May 2009 : item win Red Dot award 2009

LaCie engaged us to design a range of high quality cables. We proposed a flat design which keeps the cables tangle-free. We also designed a range of icon-based stickers so that the cables can be easily labelled and identified. The cables ship in a range of vibrant colours - coded by function.
We are particularly pleased to have won the Red Dot award for this because it confirms our belief that design is important even for the small things.
