16th Cresta International Advertising Awards – winner's reel

16th Cresta International Advertising Awards – winner's reel

Each year since 2003 I've designed a new annual event identity for the Cresta International Advertising Awards. This is used on the Call for Entries, the Judging Sessions and the Winners' Reel, among other things. 

The brief in 2008 was to highlight one of Cresta's strongest features – the international grand jury, all creative heavyweights. They are the ones who cast a critical eye on the work and determine the winners.

Happiness for Haiti – poster

Happiness for Haiti – poster

The Haiti Poster Project is a collaboration of artists and designers from around the world benefitting the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. 

Combining humour and pathos, the poster illustrates the mission of the Haiti Poster Project and Doctors Without Borders: to bring happiness back to Haiti, while at the same time remembering those who died in the earthquake (two figures standing next to a cross).

 

AIGA Santa Barbara invitation

A challenge to design an invitation on the reverse of a poster by graphic artist Michael Schwab resulted in the gradual unveiling or (r)evolution of the poster which fits nicely with the title of the event: Michael Schwab – The Evolution of a Style.

Besides providing some graphic interest, repeating the front image on the back (in reverse) in a grey tint also deepened the black of the bison on the front (show through).
