Eight Inc. has been awarded for the design excellence of its work for both the Acure Digital Vending Machine and the Jordan Brand Melo M8 Pop-Up Installation.
The Acure Digital Vending Machine was recognized with one of the 45 Silver IDEA awards in the 2013 International Design Excellence Awards. The sleek 47-inch touchscreen equipped with a built-in facial recognition camera, was transformed into a responsive attendant. Acure is able to make suggestions and collect valuable sales information and be the most irresistible vending machine.
The Jordan Brand Melo M8 Pop-Up Installation was honored with the "Best of Best" in the Red Dot Awards 2013 in Communication Design category. The design was inspired after Carmelo Anthony himself. The exterior of the Bleeker Street installation in New York City mimics his explosive athletic talent on court, displayed by the shattered and diverging basketball floorboards.
