AWARDS

THE DESIGN KIDS AWARD ‘23
Chosen by Amy Hood: “There’s a real dichotomy to Knoxie’s work: the overall restraint and control of each project is offset by one element that pushes the boundaries of the project genre. Each project shows a grasp of the core audience and delivers something that works commercially but still pushes the limits a bit to keep you looking.”
