Art Center’s in-house Design Office has been featured in Print magazine’s Regional Design Annual 2010, with two pieces included among the best American designs of the year.
The most comprehensive survey of graphic design in the United States, entries are divided by region (ours falling into the “Far West.”)
The winning entries are Art Center’s Williamson Gallery TOOLS exhibition brochure (page 65), designed/art directed by Graphic Design alumna and Winnie Li, and the Spring 2010 Art Center at Night Catalog (page 67), designed/art directed by Li and illustrated by Miguel Ramirez.
They’re in good company – the entries from this region ranged from a TEDIndia brochure to (RED)NIGHTS benefit posters to editorial illustrations for The New York Times Magazine.
“Good design makes the ordinary extraordinary,” said Lucille Tanazas, judge for the Far West category.
“Good design is smart and thoughtful. Good design is provocative. Inventive. Good design enlightens and enhances our understanding of the world; has the capacity to elevate the spirit. A good designer is a catalyst; he or she makes all of the above happen and is able to inspire others to do the same.”
Congrats on a well-deserved honor!
