Redesign Awards

Redesign Awards In anticipation of the Gala coming up on Friday, May 8th, we're going to take the opportunity to devote a few posts over the next few weeks to the work of all the Medal Finalists who are in the running for Gold and Silver Medals that night, and to give everyone a chance to see what the judges all saw back in January: some truly great work from 2008.

First up, the Redesign category: truly eclectic. A music magazine, a food magazine, a travel magazine, a women's magazine, and an outdoors magazine that's over 100 years old. What do they all have in common though? Great design from each of these teams...

2008 saw a lot of books redesigning and entering PUB 44 for their effort -- at least three times the number of our typical redesign entries, making this award much, much more competitive. But Blender, Bon Appétit, Culture + Travel, Field & Stream, and Latina rose to the top, and now one of them will go home with the Gold Medal.

Up next: Illustration Awards, including Information Graphics and Photo-Illustration. Keep an eye on the site...

    Is it true that Blender ceased the publication with the April, 2009 issue? How come? :-(

    Great stuff. Field and Stream are fabulous. Bon Appetite looks very nice also.

    Looking forward to see the rest of the stuff that won some awards this year.
