SPD 46 is the first of its kind: the hardcover design annual re-invented for the iPad. This utility is a enhanced companion to our 46th 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 46 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 2010 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. ***

An essential archive for designers everywhere
I use this app everyday both at work (I'm a magazine art director) and at home (and aspiring photographer) and even though i've only had it a week or so I already can't live without it...it's a must have resource for pros and amateurs alike. I buy the SPD book every year in print form but the deeper dive offered by the iPad version (extra layouts, more photos and more illos) is an essential companion. (not least because it's a lot easier to read on the train!). The layouts look stunning and it's super easy to navigate...illustrators, photographers and designers everywhere need this app to use as essential reference material. Great job SPD
I have SPD 45 and absolutely love browsing through it, so I couldn't wait for the release of 46. It's user friendly, and super easy to navigate for quick skimming. What a fantastic organized archive of the year's awarded work. A must-have for anyone that loves publication design or simply loves visual inspiration in seconds.
SPD's iPad app is the best way to see what's trending in graphic design today. As much as I love the hard-cover annuals, this is a much more convenient way to review, and the work looks so much better on the tablet!
