Four posters designed by Planet Propaganda were honored by the jurors of "365: AIGA Annual Design Competitions 29." The 155 total winning selections were chosen from more than 4,700 entries AIGA received from across the globe.
The Planet's hand-printed winning posters beckoned fans to High Noon Saloon in Madison, Wis. for musical performances by Sparklehorse, Califone and Electric Six. These examples draw from just one year of the past three decades in Planet's long-running visual tribute to live music. Also among the award-winners is Planet's poster for "Middle of Nowhere," a campus lecture at University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.
Representing examples of the best work produced in 2007, Planet's poster designs will be included in AIGA Design Archives, a searchable visual database of exemplary design available at designarchives.aiga.org. The award-winning works also will be exhibited online, at New York's National Design Center and at the Denver Art Museum.
Posters are evaluated as part of the promotional design and advertising category. Esteemed judges for this category included Sean Adams of AdamsMorioka, Los Angeles; Paula Scher of Pentagram, New York; and Michael Vanderbyl of Vanderbyl Design, San Francisco.
