Congratulations to Tony Erpelding, Group Delphi principal and vice president of Creative Services, for receiving the inaugural EDPA Michael R. Westcott Designer of the Year Award! This prestigious award – holding the stature of an Oscar for the motion picture industry – recognizes Tony’s extraordinary contributions to enhance the professional standards of exhibit design through his talent, creativity and personal time to innovate in exhibit design. Named after Michael Westcott, a pioneer and great supporter of Group Delphi who moved the exhibit industry beyond manufacturing to strategic client partnerships, the award acknowledges Tony’s nod to the power of strategy and compelling storytelling.
Over the past 25 years, Tony has remained committed to the power of design and designers, believing that design happens best when collaborating with other disciplines that see themselves as equally creative. We are so proud of Tony’s accolade but mostly for his ability to inspire us all at Group Delphi to design big with wonder, awe and connection.
