The Australian Record Industry Association requested submissions for the design of the new ARIA award.
Designing something so iconic comes around rarely in a designer's career. At the time we were designing album covers and marketing material for Virgin Records.
A timeless piece was designed to represent the pinnacle of success for the recipient and to work with the ARIA logo. Silver, to the point, strong, and weighty (literally).
Our design by Mark Denning was chosen from a multitude of entries and it has become a symbol of achievement amongst both Australian and overseas artists.
Every award is marked with a credit to "Mark Denning" on the base of the ARIA.
MDG has worked for over 10 years in the music industry designing album and single covers for Festival Records, BMG Records, Virgin Records, Transistor Records, ABC Records and many independent artists.
