Great news: we’ve been honored with a Gold Award in the Graphis Poster Annual ’08-’09 for the Waterworks Architectonics poster. Here are all of the winners. (We’re in really good company.) First published in 1944, Graphis is one of the design industry’s most respected publications, and is recognized globally as a visual archive of the most significant and influential communication design being done today.
Graphis Poster Annual ’08-’09 will be available in June.
Our design for this Waterworks poster illustrates the entire Architectonics collection of tile. Shape silhouettes flow down one side, all 99 colors in the full palette stack up on the other (after the jump). Illustrations by Eileen Hahn.
For the design of the first issue of Waterworks’ new quarterly magazine we created a graphic, tabloid format and asked Marian Bantjes to reinterpret a water study by Leonardo di Vinci. Her splendid illustration graces the cover and opening pages. Interior spreads feature product stories and news, and the Architectonics tile poster folds up into the centerfold (after the jump).
