One of the six gold medals presented at the Pixel Perfect Awards for innovative digital solutions was won by the Motif Creator app, based on the collections of the Museum of Ethnography.
The app collects more than a thousand vectorized ornaments from the Hungarian and international artifacts of the Museum of Ethnography.
