There’s a first for everything: take a look at our Trump hair award!

A few months ago we received a very unusual request: “Could you please make us an award in the shape of Trump-hair that is wobbling around on a moving spiral?”

I’m guessing that at this point everybody must have heard about Donald Trump. Without getting too political, let’s just say he’s famous because he’s the president-elect of the united states. What else is he famous for: his all natural(?) weaves; canary-blond and full of secrets. It’s safe to say that our design team was pretty exited when we read the e-mail.

This was definitely one of the most fun challenges for the team. After some sketching and research we finally had our model ready. Then there awaited us another challenge: finding the spiral that would fit the 3D printed hair without moving too much so the award would break or bend over.

When we finally puzzled everything together and we were super proud of the result! What do you think?

The event stands for creativity and lots of colour. That’s why we chose the design of the award being a fully 3D printed Wacom pen causing an ink explosion using the vivid Wacom colours.

If you look closely you can see the name of the event between the organic ink explosion lines.

Because every award has been spray-painted by hand, every award has it’s unique look!

The colourful assembly is placed on an oak foot with laser engravings, which has been treated with a special oil to create the exclusive look the Wacom Inkathon award deserves.

Congratulations to the finalists and winners!
