Eight packaging designers and specialists gathered in Los Angeles this week to get a look at — and make their assessments of — packaging entries in the 2016 Mobius Awards.
The judges included (clockwise beginning top right) Mark Quest of Good Projects, Luis Camano of Grupo Gallegos, Fabian Geyrhalter of FINIEN, Lynn Jacob of Associated Packaging, Lucik Kozozian and Lance Johnson of Luko Designs. Not pictured, but no less active in the judging process, were Barbara Yeh and Stephen Webster of BYStudio Branding + Design + Marketing. All are from the Los Angeles area except for Jacob whose company is in Greater Detroit.
This was a serious bunch that kept heads down as they judged displays on tables and on the screen. A total of 18 judges will be viewing packaging entries, including the online judges. Results will be released in January.
