ADG LAUS AWARDS 2018. By the art Directors & graphic Designers Association. Barcelona
The ADG Laus Awards are Spain’s most prestigious annual prizes in graphic design and visual communication. They recognize the best projects from over fifty sections that are divided into five categories: Graphic Design, Digital, Advertising, Audiovisual, and Student. To celebrate the awards, this book provides a current overview of the design world’s talent, innovation, excellence, and conceptual and formal quality. This volume is divided in two parts. The first pays homage, through extensive profiles, to two icons: Enric Aguilera, the recipient of the Honorary Laus in recognition of his career in graphic design and art direction, and the famous footwear company Camper, which won the Laus Companies & Institutions award for this global brand’s support for all aspects of design. The second part documents this year’s Grand Laus awards, which recognized some particularly extraordinary projects in the Student and Audiovisual categories. It also covers the Aporta awards, which pay tribute to projects that have an especially significant impact on society. Finally, on the other side of the book, readers will find all the winners of Laus Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards.
