Jenn David Connolly Selected as Jury President for Mondial de la Bière’s First Bottle Design Contest
Jenn David Connolly, owner and founder of the award-winning graphic design studio Jenn David Design (www.jenndavid.com), was recently invited to serve as president of the judging jury for the first edition of the Mondial de la bière’s Bottle Design Contest, during the 19th annual beer festival, the Mondial de la bière. Held in Montreal, Canada June 5-6, 2012, the mission of this new competition is to honor the aesthetical investment of today’s brewery in the bottle and the outer appearance’s design.
Ms. Connolly, who was the only American on the five-person panel, was thrilled to be named President of the Jury. “It’s exhilarating to judge design competitions, particularly ones in packaging, as that’s something I’m especially passionate about,” she says. “Serving as the president of this jury was truly exciting; I had the pleasure of naming the award winners after the judging and giving a special thanks to all the brewers who participated in the festival. It was interesting to critique such a wide array of designs and subject matter used in the different beer labels submitted for the competition, and the beer designs came from all over the world. I am truly honored to have been invited to participate in this first-ever design component of the Mondial de la bière.”
There were a total of 86 beers submitted for judging in three categories: Nature, Art and History. The 4 judges had a first round session of each selecting 5 designs from each category. The second session consisted of individual evaluations of all the selected beers from the first round. There were three winners in each category for Bronze, Silver and Gold, as well as a Platinum winner for the best in show.
