PLBuyer Announces Design Excellence Awards Finalists

October 18, 2012

The second year of PLBuyer’s Design Excellence Awards brought in more than 100 submissions over 16 categories, giving our quartet of judges plenty to think about over the course of a September day.

Judges were not able to vote on products submitted by their company, but Christopher Durham of My Private Brand, Lindsey Hurr of Immotion Studios, Todd Maute of CBX, and Dennis Whalen of Michael Osborne Design spent an afternoon combing over the submissions to find the best of the best.

Finalists are listed below, and will be displayed at the PLBuyer booth at the 2012 PLMA Trade Show in Chicago, and we will announce the winners in each category from the booth at the show, as well as the top three picks by the judges for Best of Show.
