Los Angeles-based design studio Ramp Creative received merit awards of design excellence in HOW Magazine's 2009 International Design Annual for design excellence.
Judges Stefan Bucher, Shannon Carter and Lisa Sanger selected Ramp's projects along with 297 winning designs among international entries.
The merit awards showcase the New Hat identity system and the CWS Capital Partners 2006 Annual Report.
The company identity designed for New Hat, a boutique post-production agency in Santa Monica, is a multi-colored landscape-oriented system developed to communicate the color-correction capabilities of the company.
The annual report, themed "Circulating Value," communicates the importance of sustaining investments for keeping the market healthy in CWS Capital Partner's business.
Both projects were published in the April 2009 issue of HOW Magazine.
