Parallax Wins The Rita ... Again!
We were honoured to have taken out not one but two awards for our Poltergeist Gin packaging at last week's Adelaide Advertising and Design Association Extra Ordinary Awards, including one that sits very close to our hearts—The Rita Siow Design Chair.
The Rita Siow Design Chair was introduced to the AADC Awards in 2021 in honour of the late Rita Siow. Winners from the design category are eligible to win the Rita Siow Design Chair for best overall entry—chosen by the Chair of Judges. We were fortunate to be the first to win this award in 2021, and very humbled to receive it again last week.
Rita was a long-time champion of design in Australia and a mentor to many up-and-coming designers. She was a warm, kind, generous and thoroughly decent human being. But more than that, she was a wonderful friend.
