Blue Telescope, the interactive exhibit agency, has been honored with three 2019 Summit Awards. The Summit Creative Award recognizes and celebrates the creative achievements of small and medium sized advertising agencies worldwide with annual billings under $30 million. Celebrating its 25th year, the Summit Creative Award has firmly established itself as the premier arbiter of creative excellence for firms of this size and has become a coveted honor. Blue Telescope was honored from a base of thousands of submissions from over 25 countries in this year’s competition.

The Robot Surgery Simulator for Liberty Science Center was honored with a Gold Award in the Consumer Interactive Media category. This simulator reimagines a delicate high-end surgical robot as a durable educational experience. Visitors use handheld motion controllers to manipulate the robotic arms in a series of timed challenges to test their skills and inspire future surgeons.

Our SAP Digital Pillars were recognized with a Silver Award in the Display/Trade Show/Exhibit/POP category. Showcasing ambient, environmental visual content including animation, photography, and video elements, the pillars are networked together and operate as a complete dynamic digital signage solution. The system utilizes a custom content management system across the pillars, animating and activating the surrounding space in the SAP Washington DC office.

 For the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, Blue Telescope helped enhance the USS Growler, a guided missile submarine, with a virtual walkthrough experience that won a Bronze Award in the Consumer Interactive Media category. By scanning the entire inside of the Growler, Blue Telescope was able to create a dimensional experience for all visitors to learn what it was like to go to sea in the iconic submarine.

Blue Telescope principal Trent Oliver shared that the firm is honored to be recognized again by the Summit Awards. “These three diverse projects all share a common goal: making complex information compelling, accessible, and delightful. We are excited to celebrate the bold visions of our clients and our collaboration in bringing them to life.”
