84 Award-Winning Projects from In-House Design Teams

Here at HOW, we’re always especially thrilled to announce the winners of the HOW In-House Design Awards, which recognizes the very best creative work produced by designers doing in-house work for corporations, associations and organizations.

These in-house design heroes put in the work and pull off incredible feats of creativity day in and day out. As the driving force behind their respective companies’ design efforts, they deserve recognition, and it’s our honor to deliver it in our own way.

The 84 winning projects featured in the galleries below were evaluated by business category by three judges—Ximena O’Reilly of Nestlé and formerly of Kraft Foods, Nathaniel Axios of IBM Public Service, and David Lesué of Workfront and formerly of Adobe—with support from the HOW editorial staff. 

Explore these winning projects below, and don’t miss the Winter 2017–2018 issue of HOW magazine, in which you’ll find an in-depth story about the Best of Show winner’s design system that took their company’s design-centric philosophy to a whole new level, plus behind-the-scenes details on every top winner. Look for it in My Design Shop in early December.

A big congratulations to all our winners!
