2009 SOTA Award Keepsake and Presentation

Keepsake designed in honor of Dutch design legend Gerard Unger (Bussum, The Netherlands). Unger was presented with the 2009 SOTA Typography Award at TypeCon2009 in Atlanta.

The ink was selected as a nod to the honoree’s passion for the color purple. Typeface used was one of Unger’s own, Capitolium News.

Design was carried out onscreen during the awards presentation, and etched on a crystal goblet serving as a physical keepsake for the honoree.
