This year the Atlanta chapter of AIGA [1] received a record number of entries for their annual SEED Awards [2], and rather than discarding all those submission shipping materials they decided to repurpose them into the awards themselves! The clever recycled [3] trophies were created by laser-cutting cardboard [4] into a film reel for the motion category, a mouse for the interactive category, and a book for the print category. The only costs involved were for the laser-cutting and silkscreening, and all the materials were assembled by hand. We applaud AIGA Atlanta’s ingenuity for recycling their readily available materials into environmentally-sound symbols of accomplishment.
