Booker Prize by Hoop is a clear winner

The environmental design for the Man Booker International Prize ceremony is being designed by Hoop Associates

When the prize is presented to Albanian writer Ismail Kadare in Edinburgh later this month, the award he takes home will have also been created by the group.

The design and communications consultancy, which handles the design and branding for the Man Booker Prize, will also be creating banners and display panels for the prize-giving at Edinburgh Castle.

Suspended inside the acrylic block is a version of the prize’s three-colour book logo on two planes of Perspex. The colours of the pages will change every two years – as often as the prize is awarded.

Kadare, Albania’s foremost poet and novelist, won out over a field which also included Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Philip Roth, Milan Kundera and Britain’s own Ian McEwan.
