The LIA 2016 design and package jury has some really well known names on the list, starting with Pum Lefebure as the president. She is the co-founder and chief creative officer of Design Army in Washington, DC, but is a Thai native. She was named by Graphic Design USA as one of the top 50 People to Watch, and was awarded as a Rising Star by the Washington Business Journal's Women Who Mean Business. With her on the jury is Isabelle Dahlborg Lidström Creative Director & Founding Partner at NINE, Stockholm, but she's also worked in New York City and Copenhagen and she's a winner of the a diamond Pentaward. From Chicago comes Napath Omathikul, the vice president design director at Leo Burnett. All the way from Brazil we get Gisela Schulzinger, head of innovation at Pande, São Paulo. Lauren van Aswegen comes, despite the Dutch sounding name, to represent Ogilvy & Mather New York. The Global Chief Creative Officer Alexander Schill sits for SERVICEPLAN München, and has the best beard of the lot. Naoki Ito flies on from Tokyo, Japan and is the CEO & Creative Director as well as Founder of PARTY, Tokyo. Michael Brindley, the Creative Director of Fitch Inc. in Columbus rounds off the jury.
Good luck jury, and even better luck to you contenders. May the best design win.
