The Hermes Creative Award statuette is a majestic symbol of the ancient Greek messenger who, according to myth, was the Olympian god of literature, orators and poets. The sleek H with its intricately carved wings, the statuette is a contemporary, abstract piece of art recognizing the messenger’s role in creativity, design, and technology.
