The idea for the Winebadge originated whilst enjoying a bottle of red wine with friends. There were no place mats to avoid stains on the table and this led to the idea of fitting a place mat directly to the glass. After a number of prototypes, advertising space for the vintners was added. The challenge was to balance the strength and shape of the carton to harmonise the Winebadge and the wine glass.
“The Pro Carton Young Designers Award is an exciting experience. Winning the award would be recognition of my creativity and a good reference for my future career.”
