SPD 45

By The Society of Publication Designers

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


SPD 45 is the first of its kind: the hardcover design annual re-invented for the iPad. This utility is a enhanced companion to our 45th annual hardcover annual featuring the best in editorial design, photography and illustration in print and digital. Selected by a jury of more than 40 exemplary visual journalists, the award winning work showcased in SPD 45 received merit awards for achievement, Silver awards for distinctive achievement, or Gold awards for Excellence. Also included in the app are the Magazine of the Year winner and finalists, the winners of the 2009 SPOTS illustration competition, and the winners of the SPD Student Design and Photo Competition.

*** The app download includes all of the art files displayed in the app, which allows for off-line viewing, but may cause slow download times over the air. ***

This is the "director's cut" of the SPD Annual: featuring more work, expanded examples from the winners, and the essential resource for connecting great work to the creatives responsible—all searchable by credits and tags. You can also filter all the work by Gold medal, Silver medal and Merit.
