5 ways to win the young designer of the year award

1 of 5 1/5
how to win young designer of the year award

Produce a design that can be built

Pictured: the first ever winning design, by Fadi Pataq

The design brief for the inaugural Young Designer of the Year Award specified a unique charter vessel with a low carbon footprint. The award, presented in 2008 at the World Superyacht Awards in Venice, Italy, went to Fadi Pataq for his 70.26m motor yacht concept, Pelagia. The judges singled this steel-aluminium design for its styling and engineering that clearly achieved the necessary balance between form and function.

Looking back, Fadi, who is now the Creative Director for superyacht builder Nobiskrug, says that the story behind his design – the packaging of various green technologies – made it a winner in the judges’ eyes. Pataq's design also stood out amongst the other entrants in that it was a viable design – one that not only possessed uniqueness in its styling but had the potential to be built.
