In recent years, there has been an influx of graphic designers departing the agency world in favour of employment within companies, government and organizations. In 2013, nearly 60% of clients were using in-house marketing capabilities. The In-House Design Awards program provides a unique outlet for internal creatives to showcase their skill and value.
