2016 American Graphic Design Awards

Sponsored by Erickson Stock

This year’s showcase reflects the increasingly expansive ways in which graphic design shapes business and society, products and services, commerce and culture. Winning projects run the gamut from traditional print and packaging to non-traditional internet and interactive, from dream assignments to bread and butter endeavors, from large creative departments to independent design studios and freelancers, from established stars to rising newcomers, from red states to blue.
