This year's Creative Impulse Award winners have been announced in a formal ceremony at Creativeworld. As in previous years, entries were received across a wide range of product categories including general items, tools, kits and books.
At the beginning of 2019, a panel of experts from across retail, industry and the media met in Frankfurt to consider this year's submissions. “There was everything there, from minutely detailed tools to environmentally sustainable art and handicraft materials, ingenious kits and creative books,” explains show director and judge Michael Reichhold. “With such a wealth of ideas, the decision was anything but easy.”
This year's winners were revealed on 26th January in the show's Creativeworld Forum. Creative Product of the Year was awarded to myboshi for its Favourite Colours line, which uses natural dyes and is portable, entertaining and sustainable. Creative Tool of the Year was handed to the Dremel Stylo+, a multitool that's suitable for a range of different applications such as carving, engraving, polishing, cleaning and grinding. The product is particularly well-suited to filigree ornamentation and can even be used on glass. Creative Kit of the Year went to Marabu's Soft Linol Textil Print and Colouring set, which offers many different techniques and combinations, coupled with modern design and an easy-to-understand application process. Creative Book of the Year was awarded to the Kremer Pigments Recipe Book, which contains 37 colour combinations to help readers produce colour in a sustainable and exciting way.
