Eleven of the world’s top designers have been chosen to judge the One Show Design awards, the industry’s most prestigious international awards competition honoring the year’s best in advertising design, corporate identity, environmental design, publication design, direct mail and package design.
“Due to the increasing number of entries received from around the world and the growing emphasis placed upon good design in the consumer marketplace, last year marked the first time design was given its own separate event,” said Mary Warlick, CEO of The One Club. “One Show Design honors only the very best in design, so naturally, we only invite the very best designers to judge the work.”
