Mockett design contest winners announced

There were four winning designs submitted to the 25th annual “Doug Mockett & Company Design Contest”, it was announced today by owner Doug Mockett.

Mockett design contest winners announced“We were overwhelmed with entries this last year”, said Mockett, “From 14 different countries all over the globe, designers excited to send something in for the quarter century anniversary. But perhaps a little surprisingly, all four First Place awards went to submissions from the USA”.

The First Place awards went to:
* Rick Poliquin of Henderson, NV, for a unique purse hook design, to hang a purse or computer bag under a desk or restaurant counter;
* Eric Coursey of Skandia, MI, for “Node”, a wire manager that gathers multiple wires at a central point and gently curves them around the edge of a desk;
Mockett design contest winners announced* Saruul Herz of New York, NY, for “Polished Balance”, a new approach to table leg design with the legs bending inwards instead of standing straight up;
* Mark Zack of Hillsborough, NC, for a series of stylish machined metal wire managers that can easily be placed or moved on a desk or work surface as needed.

Mockett design contest winners announcedEach will receive $1000 First Prize, an engraved trophy, and a royalty based on sales.

Entries are now open for the 2011 Competition. Deadline is the Tuesday after Labor Day weekend, September 6, 2011.
