Art Directors Club Launches Annual Awards App
By Teresa Demel
The Art Directors Club (ADC) has embraced Adobe Digital Publishing Suite for its 91st edition of the Art Directors Annual. The Annual, historically delivered in print, showcases work by ADC Annual Awards recipients, featuring top-notch work in design and advertising worldwide. The Art Directors Annual 91 is released on the iPad, allowing Art Directors and Creative Directors to experience 2011’s most creative work through video, scrolling frames, and slideshows. The app was built by the DPS expert agency goodfellas, the designers of Billboard Brasil and Forbes Brasil.
Today, the Art Directors Club announced the app at their 92nd Annual Awards + Festival of Art and Craft in Advertising and Design. Conference attendees can download the app on their iPad and explore 2011 winners. Tomorrow, 2012 winners will be announced at the 92nd Annual Awards ceremony in Miami Beach. The competition has grown significantly since its inception in 1920, when it had three categories. Now there are winners from 220 categories including publication design, packaging, photography, and interactive media.
