For nearly five decades, GDUSA has sponsored national competitions that spotlight the most important, fastest-growing and valuable areas of design for business and society. Our well-established programs and annuals – focusing on Graphic Design, Inhouse Design and Package Design – have provided long-deserved recognition to award-winning creatives.
Over the past few years, the American Web Design Awards has taken its rightful place, especially as online design has grown quickly into the second most frequent source of projects for professional graphic designers. According to our Spring 2012 reader survey, fully 72 percent of you have worked on web design and related projects – and, certainly, much of the energy and growth in the field is in this arena.
Our competition celebrates the power of well-designed websites and other online communications to attract audiences, generate engagement and response, and promote products, services and ideas. Today, we announce the winning firms of the 2012 American Graphic Design Awards. The more than 200 winning designs, including creative credits and their URLs, are also being unveiled this week on our website, and will remain there for an entire year. Here are a handful of winners to whet your appetite.
