59th GDUSA Design Showcase

Sponsored By Billerud North America

We present our 59th anniversary showcase of roughly 750 projects — the competition saw 14,000+ entries — that reflect the increasingly expansive ways in which graphic design serves and shapes commerce and culture. Winners run the gamut from traditional to new media; from inspirational assignments to bread and butter projects; from large creative agencies and departments to boutique design studios and freelancers and, of course, student work; from established stars to rising newcomers; and from red states and blue. You can also view the winners in the print edition, produced on Influence® text by Billerud, or in our digital edition easily accessible from the homepage.
