Salazar Awards

Salazar Awards
  • Enrique Salazar profile illustration: Lisa Salazar
  • Banner ad designs from 2010-2014: various BCGDC members, Human Logo: Trademarks & Symbols

In honour of designer/instructor Enrique Salazar (a founder of the BC Chapter of the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada), this annual event recognizes up-and-coming design students. The poster features a medal—symbolizing individual effort & recognition—made up of Salazar's profile with text about "Nurturing Creativity", the 2009 theme. On the reverse side is a fun message inspired by his personal standards. Eventually the main graphic was adopted as a logo for subsequent Salazar Awards, of which I've been a guest judge in 2012 and 2014, as well as a winner in 1991.
