2021 GDUSA Inhouse Awards Showcase

GDUSA’s American Inhouse Design Awards™ is the original and premier showcase for outstanding work by inhouse designers and their departments. This year’s showcase of roughly 350 projects – there were a near record 6,800+ entries – reflects the many and varied ways in which inhouse creatives advance the mission of and build value for their companies, institutions, brands, products, services and causes. It also serves as powerful testimony that the inhouse value proposition – creative professionals who have a deep and intimate knowledge of the institutional identity, culture and objectives are perfectly positioned to deliver effective and authentic communication – is alive and well in a time of challenge and change. (See more thoughts from the publisher on this awards showcase and its meaning in 2021.)
