Design Museum Announces Award Winners

from the creative review blog ::

Tomer Hanuka’s jacket illustration for the Penguin Classics Deluxe version of Philosophy In The Boudoir by the Marquis de Sade

The category winners of the Design Museum’s Brit Insurance Design Awards have been announced with Penguin’s US Classics Deluxe editions winning in the graphics category and Haque’s Burble London installation taking the interactive prize

The category winners were decided by a judging panel consisting of Vitra’s Rolf Fehlbaum, publisher Lars Müller and architect and designer Antonio Citterio.

The Penguin books, also known as the Graphic Classics, is a series of re-issued well-known books featuring special covers by the likes of Chris Ware (Candide, below)


Lady Chatterley’s Lover illustrated by Chester Brown


And The Portable Dorothy Parker by Seth


In choosing them the judges commented (somewhat ungrammatically) “It’s a great achievement by its creative director Paul Buckley in commissioning a highly skilled group of illustrators and cartoonists whose creative visions have produced some fantastic atmospheric yet very individual covers with high artistic flair and design integrity.” For the rest of the graphics category (including two CR projects) see here
