Most Appreciated Projects on Behance: National Design Awards Edition

Appreciations are a way to send genuine kudos to another creative professional on Behance. This is our community’s way of curating the network, so that the best projects gain the most exposure. Here’s a look at two of the most appreciated projects from our recently launched National Design Awards gallery:

New York-based design studio Diller Scofidio + Renfro integrates architecture with visual and performing arts. In collaboration with James Corner Field Operations and Piet Oudolf, DS+R designed the 1.5-mile long public park known as the Highline. Built on an abandoned, elevated railroad the Highline runs from Manhattan’s Meatpacking district through to the Hudson Rail Yards. See the full project here.

Global design studio, MINIMAL, best known for their iconic, disruptive products put their detail-oriented approach to work in creating a high tech case that transforms your iPhone into a “rugged everyday warrior.” Check out the full projects for close-ups of the Gorilla glass lens, aluminum cover and even witness a Taktik-protected iPhone getting dropped over and over (and surviving) here.

Scott Wilson Wins National Design Award

We’re on a mission to empower the creative world, so we love nothing more than celebrating successes from the Behance community. From awards to new jobs and exciting collaborations, Behance helps connect talent with opportunity one project at a time.

 Active Behance member, and founder of the global design studio MINIMAL, Scott Wilson was recently honored with the prestigious 2012 Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award for excellence in the category of Product Design.

“Being recognized by such a prestigious design organization and awarded for my body of work is the greatest honor of my career. It makes all the countless hours, obsessing over the details and product experience, even more meaningful,” said Scott Wilson. “I continue to look forward to the new challenges and opportunities for design in the world and hope to live up to the expectations that come along with this honor.”
