Design a Face Mask Challenge
Face masks are already being worn by people around the world as a way to protect themselves and prevent the spread of coronavirus. As its already becoming the new norm to wear a protective mask, it’s likely to be made a requirement by the cruise lines that all guests and crew members to wear face masks on board.
We embraced the idea of wearing protective masks on a day-to-day basis and asked the cruise design and hospitality communities to do the same by taking part in our Design a Face Mask Challenge! We asked the community to put their creativity and innovation to the test and design a face mask that was protective, practical and still looked good.
With the incredible talent that this industry has to offer, we were not surprised by how many fantastic entries we received, which were then sent to two of the biggest names in the industry, My Nguyen and Petra Ryberg to judge.
After much deliberation, our judges have come to a decision on who they think deserves to win the Design a Face Mask Challenge… Are you ready?
