Wallpaper* Design Awards 2014

Art director, illustrator and filmmaker Christian Borstlap introduces our judges - and the winners they championed - in a suitably attention-grabbing manner

Each year, we invite a panel of high-ranking creatives to form a supreme court and sit in judgement over the 11 special award categories that make up our Judges' Awards, shortlisted by us. To introduce 2014's judges - and the winners they championed - in a suitably eye-popping fashion, we turned to art director, illustrator and filmmaker Christian Borstlap. Among our judging panel of six high-altitude achievers: Victoria Beckham, Michael Chow, Ron Gilad, Spike Jonze, Thom Mayne and Thaddaeus Ropac.
