Emiliano Ponzi’s series of book covers for the Italian language editions of the German-born American writer Charles Bukowski’s novels, poetry and short stories received a Gold Cube for Illustration in the Art Directors Club 92nd Annual Awards. The series has already received many accolades, winning a Gold Medal in the Society of Illustrators’ Illustrators 55 competition.
Published by Feltrinelli, Emiliano has illustrated nine titles so far. Bukowski, famed for his gritty, explicit style of writing, depicted “a certain taboo male fantasy: the uninhibited bachelor, slobby, anti-social, and utterly free” said Michael Greenberg of The Boston Review. The illustrations Emiliano created needed to communicate both the titles and Bukowski himself, and they succeeded in doing so.
Judged by an international panel of the world’s most respected creative professionals, the ADC Annual Awards competition honors the best work from around the world in interactive media, broadcast and print advertising, graphic design, publication design, packaging, photography and illustration. Winners are presented with the ADC’s coveted Gold and Silver Cubes at a gala ceremony each spring. All of the winners are featured in the award-winning Art Directors Annual, the oldest and most respected compendium of outstanding work in the industry, whose pages have been graced by the work of such legendary figures as Saul Bass, Roy Grace, Helmut Krone and Bill Bernbach. On the heels of the awards ceremony, ADC sends the Gold, Silver and Bronze work on a worldwide tour – from New York to Sao Paolo, Wiesbaden to Beijing, and scores of venues in between – in ADC’s International Annual Awards Exhibition.
Pieter Van Eenoge’s illustrations have recently been selected as award-winning by a number of illustration competition juries. In 2012, he was awarded the prestigious Boekenpluim prize, something equivalent to a ‘red ribbon Caldecott’, for excellence in a Flemish children’s book.
His poster for the Boekenbeurs 2011 Book Fair received an Award of Excellence from Communication Arts and appeared in their 2012 annual.
Pieter’s Boekenpluim prize was for De dokter en het leger van Davy (or The Doctor and Davy’s Army), written by Edward van de Vendel and published by de Eenhoorn. Each year the coveted prize is awarded to two books that feature exceptional illustrations.
His piece for the Cultural Centre De Spil’s newsletter received a merit award in the ‘Editorial’ category in the 3×3 Pro Show No.9.
Pieter had a personal series of illustrations and an editorial illustration chosen as winners by the 3×3 Pro Show No.8. His personal series, Phantom of Wing, which included the image below, received a gold medal in the ‘Gallery’ category, while his piece, Autumn Leaves, received a merit award in the ‘Editorial’ category.
His illustrations for De dokter en het leger van Davy (or The Doctor and Davy’s Army), written by Edward van de Vendel and published by de Eenhoorn, received a merit award in the 3×3 Children’s Show No.8.
Last year Jungyeon Roh created a series of illustrations for Kiehl’s Since 1851. In 2003, New York City mayor, Michael Bloomberg, declared November 12th ‘Kiehl’s Day’ in honor and recognition of their ongoing contributions to the community. Since then Kiehl’s stores worldwide have joined in the celebration, making significant contributions in their own communities to commemorate this special day. Jungyeon’s illustrations could be seen on Kiehl’s in-store signage and promo materials in stores worldwide.
The series (click here to see it) was so well-received it recently won a merit award in HOW magazine’s InHOWse Design Competition. The awards program shines a spotlight on an under-represented segment of the design industry, giving in-house designers the kudos they deserve. Part of the Kiehl’s series included a map of New York City’s East Village, home to the original Kiehl’s store in 1851. The map was chosen to appear in the Society of Illustrators 55 annual and will be on display as part of the Editorial, Book and Advertising exhibition at the Society of Illustrators in New York from January 30th through March 2nd, 2013. Congratulations go out to Jungyeon, Travis Cain (Art Director for the project) and everyone at Kiehl’s!
Graham Roumieu’s collaboration with Toronto design agency, Underline Studio, for Ramsay Inc. recently received a merit award at Directions 2012, the Advertising and Design Club of Canada‘s 63rd annual show. The website for speechwriter, book editor, and communications strategist, Bob Ramsay, was honored in the Corporate Identity category. Winners were announced at Koerner Hall at the TELUS Centre for Performance and Learning this past November in Toronto. Congratulations go out to Graham, Mr. Ramsay and everyone at Underline Studio!
