2017 GDUSA Student Design Awards

We present the winners of our inaugural GDUSA Student Design Awards™. GDUSA has been organizing prestigious and welcoming competitions for 54 years — in graphic, package, web, inhouse and healthcare design — to recognize the power of design to shape commerce and culture. Schools and students have long been, and continue to be, valued and integral participants in each of these. But in 2017 we have added a dedicated awards contest for students because the truth is that students and educators have increasing influence on the changing shape of communications, media and culture. The idea clearly resonated: the GDUSA Student Design Awards™ has immediately become one of our most popular — and is already our most selective — competition.
