Since 1965, the Henry Hewes Design Awards have recognized outstanding achievement in design for theatre on Broadway, off-Broadway, and off-off-Broadway, celebrating the fields of scenic design, costume design, lighting design, and notable effects: a unique category that includes achievement in sound, music, video, and puppetry. We would like to congratulate the Vectorworks Spotlight users who are among the 66 nominated artists and four award winners from 49 productions that ran during the 2014-2015 season.

We’re starting to see a flood of graduation pictures on social media and thought we’d take the time to share some career advice from Vectorworks users across multiple fields. Here, we’re featuring insight from Lighting Designer Donald Holder, a two-time Tony Award winner and 10-time nominee. Holder is passionate about his career. “There’s an opportunity for self-expression when designing with light that I think is the most satisfying part of the job,” he says.
