RED-DOT AWARDS 2012

Beetroot returns the “red dot agency of the year 2011” stylus as “red dot, best of the best” winner of 2012!

After a very exciting and prolific year, Beetroot is thrilled to return the red dot agency of the year stylus while winning a number of fresh 2012 red dot distinctions including: red dots for our design of “Plagios Wine”, “FENA Fashion Stores” Illustrations, our personal website “www.beetroot.gr” and our most recent work: “35 years of Benaki Museum Shop” posters.

On top of all that our illustrations for our self-published book “The Misunderstood Monsters of Greek Mythology” won a best of the best red dot communication design award as the best entry in its category!

We would like share those awards all of our clients, supporters and friends for their trust in our work and promise that we will never-ever stop doing what we love most under any circumstances: design, design design!

The Greek Monsters are in the news!

“Greek crisis: An odyssey seen through ancient myth” is a story written by CHRISTOPHER TORCHIA for Associated Press. The 1260 words article about the Greek crisis, Greek Mythology and Beetroot’s “the Greek Monsters” exhibition is in today’s news all around the globe!

The Little Greek Monsters

The Minotaur, the Cyclops, the Stymphalian Birds and more than twenty other monsters from the Greek mythology play, have fun and share their remarkable stories with the little “teratologists” who joined the educational program of The Greek Monsters exhibition!
Every Sunday, the Benaki Museum is full of our wonderful little friends who explore the exhibition in their own special way, learn by playing with the exhibits and create their own unique monsters with which they decorate the Museum’s café for the whole duration of the exhibition!
Our special educators have developed an alive and engaging program that captivates children by delving into mythology and creativity through play and theatre! But remember: The program is for Children Only!
The Little Monsters’ thunderous success from its very beginning has resulted in a total sell-out for the whole of its announced duration! So in order not to disappoint our little friends who want to participate, we extend the program until the end of July!
Book your “teratologist”’s place now and as always…
…Be(a)ware of the (little) Greek Monsters!
