Graphic Design - Three Dimensional

This award celebrates creative and innovative design in traditional or digital visual representation of ideas and messages used in packaging. Consideration given to: 
  • clarity of communication and the matching information style to audience; 
  • the approach, including marketing and branding concerns, the dynamics of the retail environment, environmental considerations, and legal requirements; 
  • the component parts of packaging graphics such as colour rationalisation, information layout, feel and tone of illustration and photography, and finishes, and how they are used in isolation and in relation to each other; and 
  • the relationship to the anatomy of the structural design.

Ani-gram-it - na2ure

Graphic Design - Three Dimensional


Imagine that a child could learn the entire Encyclopedia of Life--including how nature designs and solves problems around structure, pattern and color--without it ever feeling like school. Ani-gram-it is a beautifully designed board game that teaches children the ins and outs of the animal kingdom through play. Children are challenged to “build” animals using intuitive building blocks of anatomical information. Each play leads to new discoveries about how animals are made -- and reinforces how they are classified in the natural world. Children first comprehend by seeing, and we have spared no detail to make our board game the most visually stunning one on the market, educational or otherwise. The game features a bold color scheme utilizing deep blacks and hi-resolution photography, 100 colorful chit board tiles, and matte laminated everything. Ani-gram-it even has a sister app, called FERRET, to provide a complementary digital experience. Ani-gram-it mimics and celebrates the great beauty of the natural world… and is as much an objet d'art as a revolutionary educational tool.

Wizards and Robots - Will.i.am / Struck

Graphic Design - Three Dimensional

- Winner

It’s not everyday you are commissioned to help introduce a comic property to the world. Let alone by Will.i.am and his collaborative partner Brian David Johnson, a futurist at Intel. When they approached us to launch Wizards and Robots, a scientific story of the past, present, and future, we knew we had to do it in a way that had never been done before. The final product was a unique 3D-printed “artifact” from the future, sent back by story’s main character, which lays out the foundation of the world of WaR though 4 encyclopedia-style books.
