Have you always wanted to win an Apple Design Award? The cool little illuminated cube is something I’ve coveted for a while now, but since I don’t actually produce any hardware or software for any Apple products, I think my chances of winning one are pretty lousy.
The Iconfactory’s Craig Hockenberry was awarded an Apple Design Award at WWDC 2008 for Twitterrific for the iPhone. The award has travelled to North Carolina where the rest of the Iconfactory gang could enjoy it before it went back to Craig’s house in Laguna Beach.
The factory workers in NC grew so attached to the award that they decided to create a doppleganger out of a square glass, some clay, some touch lights and, the handyman’s secret weapon…duct tape. Throw in some spray paint and some nice penmanship and you have a do-it-yourself Apple Design Award that probably fooled Craig for 10 seconds but put a smile on his face.
The building process has been documented on an Iconfactory Flickr set so that maybe you can pretend to be a ADA winner.
