Four of Planet Propaganda's designs will be showcased as award-winning work in back-to-back issues of PRINT magazine. The September/October edition includes the launch brochure for UpperCut Images and the UpperCut/PunchStock sales kit, and the November/December issue will feature packaging design for "Talking Jazz" and for the Ribeye and Cheeze Dunnys.
Planet's brochure and sales kit for UpperCut Images was selected for PRINT's newest competition, "A+C=D Business Graphics Review." For the second year, PRINT shows its 43,000+ readers a full range of excellent work for corporate clients around the world. Exemplifying quality design that stands out in a crowded market, Planet developed UpperCut Images' brochures, sales kit and other collateral and introduced the company's new "Stock That Isn't" brand of high-end, rights-protected stock photography.
The Regional Design Annual issue is the most comprehensive survey of graphic design in the United States -- and one of the biggest issues to hit the graphic design industry each November. In 2006, PRINT received more than 20,000 individual entries for the Regional Annual, from almost every state. A panel of judges chose two of Planet's package designs to represent the best work being produced throughout the nation:
* "Talking Jazz," Ben Sidran's 24-disc collection featuring rare conversations from 60 legendary jazz musicians including Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Wynton Marsalis, and more. Planet created a functional display case worthy of passionate jazz collectors who will appreciate the elegance and exclusivity of the limited run of 1,000 box sets.
* Packaging for Cheeze and Ribeye Dunnys, the limited-edition vinyl figures Planet developed for Kidrobot, the world's premier creator and retailer of limited-edition art toys and apparel. Both figures reflect Planet's Wisconsin roots and are sold through the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum gift shop, as well as Kidrobot's retail outlets.
