October 2016 Newsletter
Below you will find a link to 100 winning pieces in our 2016 Health+Wellness Design Awards. This is an expansive competition because it rides on a wave of societal concern/interest/fear/fascination regarding the state of our own health and our healthcare system. And it is an intriguing contest because so much of the creative work ‒ and so much of the clients’ messaging ‒ is aspirational. Which is to say that the projects focus less on illness and infirmity, and more on a comprehensive sense of “wellness.” That is a good feeling to be around.
