The American Design Awards are a young and independent competition. Founded in 2000, their aim is to reward projects and companies with a strong sense of ethics and a clearly defined commitment to the creative community.
Today, we are delighted to announce we won the first prize in the “Annual Report Design” category of the 2010 Summer Semi-Annual contest. We are especially proud of this one, considering there were 1 640 applicants in this particular edition and only 55 winners across all categories!
Of course, the real winners are the product and the clients who commissioned it. In this particular instance, it is our long-term partner, the Wiener Hauskrankenpflege who can add this accomplishment to their long list of awards!
The winning project was our WHS Lagebericht 2009, an annual report with a twist, presenting the WHS inside and out from both a financial and social standpoint. Blending original type, off-beat photography and engaging copy, it aimed to put a fresh twist on the dry and serious business of annual reports, without sacrificing legibility or, for that matter, usability — for these are essential legal documents after all.
