We present our 2021 showcase – roughly 700 projects from a wave of more than 11,000 entries ‒ that reflects the many ways in which graphic design shapes business, society, culture and causes – and can be a source of clarity and lucidity at a moment of murk and confusion. Winners in this 58th annual edition run the gamut from print and packaging to internet and interactive, from dream assignments to bread and butter endeavors, from established stars to rising newcomers, from red states to blue. That this is among the largest of six decades of this endeavor says nothing about us but a lot about the resilience of creative professionals, the value of design, and the complexity of the human condition. We get knocked down, but we keep getting back up for more and, sometimes, for better. The showcase will also appear soon in a print edition and a digital edition.
