Lester Miller appointed to Design Awards Jury
We are thrilled to announce that our Head of Mechanical Engineering has been appointed to the Jury Panel of the 60th Good Design Awards. The Awards have been Australia’s highest design accolade since 1958.
This is Lester’s 5th time on the panel. He said, on hearing the news, “Design and innovation are critical to a nation’s sustained health and success. The most recent research to hand is a study last year by PWC which found that design added $10.1bn to New Zealand’s economy. Although older, the figures for Australia and the UK have been estimated respectively at $80bn and $125bn. There are many other indicators of great design that we can make other than commerciality, including innovation, contribution, and sustainability. Therefore it’s an honour to serve on the jury to debate and then highlight the best design in the world.”
This year, Leading Danish Architect Jan Utzon will present at the Awards’ Gala Dinner, to be held of course, at the Sydney Opera House.
Entries are open until 9 March 2018.
