Generic_Competition_Logos_International_130x130It’s official: HOW’s International Design Awards is open for entries. Not only that, but we’re thrilled to announce this year’s panel of judges: Marina Willer, Pentagram partner, Sebastian Padilla, co-founder and creative director of Anagrama, and Dana Arnett, chief executive officer at VSA Partners. If you want these talented individuals to review your work, be sure to enter today.

Now, let’s talk about something we’ve noticed in past years’ entries: brochure design. Excellent brochure design, to be more specific. Did you know that entries in the International Design Awards are judged by project type rather than by industry or region? That means that brochure design is up against brochure design, posters are up against posters, web design against web design—you get the idea—no matter where in the world you reside.

Here, we showcase 5 brochure designs that were winning entries last year.
