Roland owners from around the world submitted their best work created on a Roland and now the local winners have been announced. The ‘Fridge Art’ design by Impressive Signs was the winner while Galloping Naartjie and and Switch Media Lab each received Honourable Mention Awards.
‘When my wife first told me that I had won the Regional Winner category of the 2011 Roland Creative Awards I couldn’t believe my ears! I was so surprised I had to check twice to assure myself that it was right and I had indeed won, said Impressive Signs owner, Francois Hattingh. The Fridge Art graphic adds an interesting dimension to fridges, which are usually seen as ordinary and boring objects.
Galloping Naartjie did various wallpapers for Waltons’ head office in Pine Town as well as a customised wallpaper for an interior designer. ‘We take huge pride in our work and being able to offer our customers a product that can be customised to their exact needs! We always try and be a little different and a Roland machine can take us there,’ said Ian Jamieson from Galloping Naartjie.
George Roth from Switch Media Lab entered his ‘beach setting’ Contravision print into the competition. Roth suggested this solution for a client who was looking for something to brighten up his porch. ‘The sunny beach setting was suggested because the porch will always feel tranquil come rain or shine,’ said Roth.
